A man stands by protest signs as he waits for other European Union personnel to join him for a demonstration outside EU headquarters in Brussels on Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Part of European Union personnel is on a one-day strike to protest possible budget cuts that will be considered by EU leaders later this month. The leader of the USF union said Thursday that more action will be considered over the next weeks, including a stoppage during the Nov. 22-23 EU summit which was specially called to consider EU spending up to 2020.
