Sevilla residents take to the streets to protest against budget cuts

PROTESTORS have taken to the streets in Sevilla to march against the government’s budget cuts and proposed bailout.

Under a banner ‘we shouldn’t pay, we won’t pay’ the group of around 500 protestors shouted slogans and pounded pots and pans.

There were similar protests around the country as Spaniards grew increasingly frustrated with the government’s austerity measures.

“We shouldn’t have to pay back a debt that has been created by a few,”  Rafael Granadoes told the Olive Press.

Fellow protestor Nori Ortegas added: “They need to stop bailing out the banks and realise that it’s us who are going to have to pay back this debt in the long run.”

  1. Difficult to avoid propping up the banks, but those who caused the economic problem in the first place should pay. Juntas paying out millions in false pensions, drugs, luxury holidays, etc., etc., and local councils funding vast structures which stand empty.
    But protests should be directed to local government, most of which have overspent on these ‘pet’ projects and corruption.
    Make them pay!!! Get them out of office!!!
