Mortgage or Food: Thousands march to Madrid in anti-austerity protest

Thousands of people across Spain are converging on the nation’s capital. A massive demonstration is planned for Saturday against rampant unemployment, evictions and poverty. Jobless rates did fall by a record number in December however, bringing some hope. But still, over forty per cent of people under 24 are not earning. The International Monetary Fund warns the country may face five more years with over 25 per cent unemployment, unless more reforms are enacted.
