European workers stage austerity protests
40 groups from 23 countries are involved in Wednesday's demonstrations.
Workers across the European Union are staging a series of protests and strikes against rising unemployment and austerity measures.
'There is just no work'
Unions in Spain and Portugal started strikes at midnight to protest against austerity measures that have combined tax rises with cuts in salaries, pensions, benefits and social services.
Marchers came out late on Tuesday in Spain, where 25% are unemployed, the highest rate in Europe.
Armoured police buses have parked at Syntagma Square in front of parliament, ready for the expected arrival of thousands of demonstrators. This has been the location for most of the major clashes since Athens became the unofficial protest capital of Europe.
The usual propaganda war on the day of a general strike is under way. The unions say a large majority of the Spanish workforce are not working. The government says there is a considerable amount of economic activity, given that a strike has been called.
"I have two sons in my house, one is getting subsidies, the other has been at home for the last three years," said protesting housewife, Paqui Olmo.
"It is not that he doesn't want to work, there is just no work."
