General Workers Union spokesman Candido Mendez told AP that most people reject the government’s austerity policies, which he said were pushing many people toward poverty and away from democracy.

"Bread and a roof at a fair price," read some of the signs waved by protestors. Others brandished pictures of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy with the words "Wanted: serial con man".

The UGT urged "a radical and urgent change in economic policy in Europe as well as Spain".

"The policies of 2012 have been a resounding failure in tackling the crisis and have only made all our problems worse," the union said.

The Spanish government has launched a legal challenge against Catalonia’s recent “declaration of sovereignty”, in the latest move by Madrid to halt the region’s march towards independence.

The government said it would ask Spain’s constitutional court to nullify the Catalan parliament’s January declaration, which stated that the “people of Catalonia have, for reasons of democratic legitimacy, the nature of a sovereign political and legal subject”.

The resolution is intended to pave the way for a regional referendum on independence, and reflects the recent surge in separatist sentiment in Spain’s most important economic region...

Thousands of health care workers, many dressed in white lab coats, took to the streets in 16 cities across Spain to protest government budget cuts and plans to partially privatize the country’s public healthcare system.

Some in attendance waved signs reading “Your health is being sold" and "Cutting back on health care is a crime."

It was the third "white tide" demonstration in Madrid, named after the color of the medical scrubs worn by many of the protesters. Sunday’s demonstration was the first time cities apart from the capital participated, including Barcelona, Cuenca, Murcia, Pamplona, Toledo and Zaragoza.
