Anti-Austerity Protests in Madrid

Protests in Madrid against austerity measures highlighted the public’s anger at their government’s attempts to balance the books, Euronews reported. With orders from Brussels to resolve the country’s economic crisis, Mariano Rajoy’s government imposed public spending cuts for close to seven years, and with the Spanish recession still ongoing, citizens are becoming increasingly irate. Despite the government’s approval of an 8% increase in minimum wage, after seven years of austerity, much of the Spanish public are still discontent. Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro said the rise from €764.4 ($815.23) to €825.5 per month–approved at a weekly cabinet meeting–was “negotiated with other political groups”.
