A new austerity drive is sweeping across Europe, as governments struggle to trim huge budget deficits and the 16-nation eurozone races to reassure sceptical markets. Have you been affected by government cuts? If so, we want to hear from you.

So far the biggest protests have been seen in Greece, but major strikes are making the headlines elsewhere too.

In Spain, the austerity drive includes a 5% cut in public sector pay, starting in June. Salaries will then be frozen for 2011. The Irish government has presented three austerity packages in just over a year. And Italy aims to cut public sector pay and freeze new recruitment.
