Rumanian immigrant in Spain Sorin Bedreaga, 38, sits on a bench where he says he has spent 40 days on a hunger strike, as police officers protest by blocking the street in front of the Interior Ministry in Madrid, Spain, Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. The demonstrators were protesting the government’s austerity measures, especially the elimination of their Christmas bonus pay, one of 14 paychecks that most Spanish civil servants get each year. The placard next to Sorin reads in Spanish "Hunger strike since 17 September 2012". (AP Photo/Emilio Morenatti)
