Mass evictions in Spain

Protestors march to the parliament against austerity measures announced by the Spanish government, in Madrid, Spain, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012. Spain's Parliament has taken on the appearance of a heavily guarded fortress with dozens of police blocking access from every possible angle, hours ahead of a protest against the conservative government's handling of the economic crisis. The demonstration, organized behind the slogan 'Occupy Congress,' is expected to draw thousands of people. It is due to start around 1730 GMT Tuesday. Madrid authorities said some 1,300 police would be deployed. The protestors call for Parliament to be dissolved and fresh elections held, claiming the government's austerity measures show the ruling Popular Party misled voters to get elected last November.
