Anti-austerity protests continued for a second consecutive night in
Madrid on Wednesday. Thousands of protesters filled the streets
throughout the day on Wednesday, some facing off with police who had
beaten protesters with batons and fired rubber bullets into the crowds the night before. Prime Minister Rajoy still plans on announcing a new round of drastic austerity measures
on Thursday, despite national outrage, including public sector pay

already huge cutbacks in health and education. [...]

The government is right to fear the
Spanish public’s reaction to this new round of suffering mandated by the
financial markets. Already many protest signs say: “We can’t take any
