Spain public sector staff take to the streets

Thousands demonstrate against government plans for new taxes and public sector wage cuts.

    Taking their anger to the streets, Spanish government workers demonstrated in Madrid a day after tens of thousands of people protested across the country. 
     
    Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's government plans to introduce new taxes and cut public sector wages as part of a drive to slash the country's budget deficit.

    But the protesters feel the austerity measures are only making things worse.
