The Trade unions, CCOO and UGT have organized the events, and call Rajoy to "rectify".
Participants displayed banners calling for Rajoy’s resignation and early elections.
“They want to ruin the country, you should stop, we are more” was also shouted during the protest.
In Madrid, the Ministry of Economy is fenced and guarded by the police. At the same time, Places of Neptune and Cibeles are packed, in a claim but without bickering. Some of the stars of the event are the fire-fighters, who have taken even a truck to go. “We rescue people, not banks”, claim their banner.
“At the beginning people were not conscious of what was going on. Everyday is more difficult to avoid reality, people is waking up. That’s way every time the protest are more crowded”, said one participant.
This event comes after a week of intense spontaneous protests, featuring mostly government employees. The government employees were hit by the last measures of the Executive.
