MADRID – More than 100,000 protesters took to the streets in Spain on Sunday blaming bankers and politicians for causing a financial crisis that forced the country to adopt painful spending cuts.
Demonstrators of all ages linked to a movement called the “indignants” also protested against crippling unemployment and a failure to take on government corruption.
The El Mundo newspaper, quoting police sources, said as many 40,000 protesters flooded streets in Madrid.
In Barcelona, the nation’s second-largest city, police said 50,000 people turned out, while groups of several thousand demonstrators rallied in other cities.
