Hundreds of Thousands March Against Austerity in UK
via (title unknown) by jon on 5/10/12
Hundreds of thousands of public sector workers are taking part in a UK-wide
strike to protest proposed government austerity that has taken aim at their
pensions and benefits.
Expectations were that between 250,000 and 400,000 people would take to the
streets, including off-duty police officers, public health workers, and
university employees. The strike is the latest in a series since the
Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition came to power two years ago and
reveals that anger over public sector cuts is far from over.
