Austerity Anger: Cops lash out at cuts protests in Spain…(Coming To A City Near You!)
Feb 22, 2012
The streets of Spanish cities become a battlefield as tens of thousands of schoolchildren and students have been protesting against education cuts.

Five days of protests have been sparked by the latest budget cuts implemented to meet tough EU deficit targets.
