There were clashes between demonstrators and riot police outside the Spanish parliament building on Thursday, as the country revealed record high jobless figures.
There are now more than six million unemployed in Spain; 27.2 percent of those eligible to work.
The rally was organised by a group calling itself the “Stand Up” Platform which is trying to force the government to step down.
Around 1,000 people took to the streets of Madrid for the protest but they were more than matched by some 1,400 police who were deployed to protect the parliament building from some of the more violent demonstrators.
Earlier in the week two major “Indignado” groups – which staged the first “Occupy” protests – dissociated themselves from the demo as they did not share the “Stand Up” Platform’s objectives.
After riot police dispersed demonstrators from the area around the parliament building, some broke away and headed for the Atocha station where they threw projectiles at police.
At least one protester was arrested.

While you are discreetly scanning TMZ on your office computer or contemplating the Chipotle you will eat for lunch, 115 cardinals have gathered at the Vatican to select God’s new representative on earth.But there is something more than just choosing a spiritual leader for the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics weighing on the cardinals today: Gay bathhouses.News broke on Tuesday that the Holy See had purchased a $30 million dollar share of Rome real estate that includes Europe’s largest gay sauna, making them its official landlord.As reported by The Independent:The senior Vatican figure sweating the most due to the unlikely proximity of the gay Europa Multiclub is probably Cardinal Ivan Dias, the head of the Congregation for Evangelisation of Peoples, who is due to participate in tomorrow’s election at the Sistine Chapel. This 76-year-old “prince of the church” enjoys a 12-room apartment on the first-floor of the imposing palazzo, at 2 Via Carducci, just yards from the ground floor entrance to the steamy flesh pot. There are 18 other Vatican apartments in the block, many of which house priests…. Cardinal Dias, who is seen as a social conservative even by the current standards of the church hierarchy, is no doubt horrified to learn of the activities taking place a floor below.Continue Reading… … Read More
