General Strike (Posted 4-3-2012)

Last week basically the whole country dedicated a day to protesting. The purpose of the general strike was to protest cutbacks the new government has taken in recent weeks to balance the budget. The unions were furious with certain moves and called on all working spaniards everywhere to display their disapproval. The streets were full of protesters tramping through the streets, waiving signs, and plastering stickers everywhere (including starbucks windows–see below). In the video posted above, Julie was in the mall having a coffee with her intercambio friend and some strikers entered to communicate their frustration for a mall in operation.
