Spanish workers blocked streets and railways in Madrid on Friday in protests against new austerity measures.
The demonstrators said the new measures hurt ordinary people more than the bankers and politicians whom they blame for the economic crisis.
Spain's main unions are also calling on public workers to strike in September, after the Spanish government approved the deepest cuts in 30 years.
These new austerity measures will include a second round of wage cuts and reduced benefits for civil servants.
Traffic was blocked in central Madrid for hours as hundreds of public workers - many wearing black t-shirts in support of striking miners or green ones for public school teachers - shouted: "Cuts for bankers, not workers" outside ministries and public offices.
It was the third consecutive day of protests since Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy unveiled fresh austerity measures designed to slash 65 billion euros from the public deficit by 2014.
