Austerity protests in Spain and Portugal


Tens of thousand of people have been protesting in Spain and Portugal angry at harsh austerity measures.

The demonstration in Lisbon was organised by Portugal's largest trade union federation- against cuts imposed as part of the country's eurozone bailout.

In Spain, demonstrators called for the government to amend stringent repossessions laws which have seen hundreds of thousand lose their homes.
