Over 70 injured as protesters clash with police in Madrid

t least 76 people have been injured in Madrid as clashes flared up between protesters and police, the latter using rubber bullets. Thousands of Spaniards turned out against new cuts introduced by the government.

Those injured include 33 police officers and 43 protesters – miners and their supporters.

Minor arrests have been made so far, with seven people being detained. Three of those arrested reportedly threw bricks at police, local El Pais newspaper reported.

Protesters panicked and sought shelter as police began to disperse the crowd, Olvidio Gonzalez, 67, a retired miner from the northern Asturias region told AP.

“We were walking peacefully to get to where the union leaders were speaking and they started to fire indiscriminately. There was no warning,” said Gonzalez, who was also struck by a rubber bullet.

About 200 people remain surrounded by dozens of police in front of parliament, Twitter user Danips posted on his microblog.

Protesters disagree with a 63 per cent cut in subsidies to coal mining companies, major contributors to the Spanish energy market. Unions say the plan threatens 30,000 jobs and could destroy their livelihoods.

Miners, who were hiking from the north of the country for the past two weeks, have been joined by tens of thousands of Spaniards also protesting against Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s tax hike.

The prime minister announced his decision to raise VAT by 3 per cent as part of the plan to trim the public budget by 65 billion euro over the next two-and-a-half years. Rajoy also declared a 3.5-billion-euro cut to local government spending.

Many protesters marched more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) from mines in northern Spain.

after the political excurse in spanish, here again some news from RT

all pictures are @RT big thanks to them !

###

Hundreds of protesters have clashed with riot police in Madrid over the new set of austerity measures. One person suffered a broken nose and three people were arrested.

­The protesters demonstrated on Friday evening outside the People's Party offices of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy before clashing with riot police, AP reports. Police used batons to prevent the crowds from getting too close to the Socialist Workers’ Party headquarters.

The austerity measures of the conservative government of Spain have raised fierce criticism from the working middle class that has been hit the most by the financial cuts. The administration has been subject to great international pressure over the state of country’s financial system and economy with its record 25 per cent unemployment rate.

The newly-proposed austerity measures include additional sales taxes and a gradual raise of the retirement age from 65 to 67 years. The protesters insist such measures would decrease consumption, which would in turn aggravate the recession of the Spanish economy.

This new round of protests comes only two days after the previous unrest, when at least 76 people were injured in clashes, many by rubber bullets used by police. The injured included 33 police officers and 43 protesters – mostly miners and their supporters.

The latest package of Spain’s counter-crisis measures includes wage cuts and tax increases, while the country’s population struggles against the recession and an unemployment rate of almost 25 per cent.

The aim of the set of measures is to cut €65 billion off the budget deficit through 2015 – the largest deficit-reduction plan in Spain’s recent history. The government is now axing an extra payment traditionally made to civil servants just before Christmas. The government and lawmakers will also suffer the cut.

I just don't understand why the banks are getting bail outs and the people are getting cuts. I dont know why it has to be this way. Why do much contrast? In my eyes, if a bank goes bankrupt why not let it crash? And why not let the ones operate well stand alone? Why is the EU giving help to Spanish banks while people are struggling to literally put food on the table?  I also don't understand how the Spanish gov pretends to fix the economy without creating employment and worse , contributing to more unemployment. Hey don't offer any help, any fall back for the people, they don't create programs for the ones who've become homeless , nothing. It's true, try just don't care.

   In the US, there was a time where banks were more likely OK to fail because we had over 30 smaller size banks. If one or two failed, it was OK because it would just be bought up by another one. But then banks were allowed to buy up all of each other until there remained only 4 major banks- so now they are called too big to fail because they are essentially massive giants. The banking industry needs a lot more regulations put on them but the legislatures that are supposed to make the laws are all bought up by the banks lobbyist with campaign contributions. Eventually the banking industries do enough damage to the economies they feed off of to cause what we see in Spain and a lot of other places around the world. In the end the money does dry up and then there is no more middle working class for them to make money on. Then the politicians start singing their promises and unfortunately people are so desperate they vote for the best liar. What are we to do.  ???

Guess the most is about power and control. Banks and politics are connected, defenetly. One of the best facts for this was the wikileaks vs visa case (where wikileaks wins after more than a year banking blockade  ;D)

they try to hold this system, do not loose their power, their status at all. driving a big limousine and sitting in the best of all restaurants, holding hands with the "high society" - fear to loose this staus. this is a fact. well and you could maybe understand if you would think like them, black and white anno 1900, but you can´t because the most people arrived in the 21st century - they don´t.

This is why I like this 1% thinking of Occupy, the most people get grown up, but some, let me say 1%, don´t.

Thanks for the explanation. It just seems so obvious now I don't know how they still try to hide the truth by saying they care about the ppl, I mean politicians. I guess it's like a bad deal you can't get out from... The banks have got everyone by the balls, and it's difficult to
Understand fore what you say about politicians being so corrupted I just don't get them. They are the only people I don't have a clue what's inside them because they never can say what they really think, they're the best liars...

Thanks for the pics. It's awful this bullets could kill you. No joke there. The police is awful,they must be getting good pay checks to do this.
