Seville, Spain

People hold union flags and banners during a demonstration called by Spanish labor unions to protest government austerity cuts. Garbage went uncollected and hospital care was reduced in Spain as tens of thousands of public workers went on strike to protest austerity cuts intended to rein in a public deficit that has rattled global financial markets. Unions representing the country's roughly 2.6 million public workers, including doctors and street cleaners, called the strike last month after the government unveiled another $18 billion in spending cuts over two years.
