Protestors shout slogans against austerity measures announced by the Spanish government in Madrid, Spain, Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012. Several thousand people noisily banging pots and pans are marching down Madrid's main north-to-south boulevard protesting the government's austerity measures. With unemployment nearing 25 percent, Spain has introduced biting austerity measures as well as financial and labor reforms in a desperate bid to lower its deficit and assuage investors' misgivings.
