Thousands of Spanish police officers march against austerity

Around 5,000 Spanish police officers marched through the streets of Madrid on Saturday to protest government austerity measures, including frozen pensions and the elimination of their Christmas bonuses.

Officers travelled from across Spain to take part in the demonstration which was called by the nationís main policing union.

Protesters blew whistles, shouted slogans, and carried anti-austerity banners as they marched through the city centre to the interior ministry.

"Citizens! Forgive us for not arresting those truly responsible for this crisis: bankers and politicians," read one banner.

1. I hope that those LEOs marching are marching because they know this is wrong.

 

The nasty old geezer in me says it's because they might lose their own jobs.

& R in the hope that I'm wrong.
