Austerity - take your pick

  1. Thousands gather in Montreal, Quebec City for anti-austerity demos (May well hurt Trudeau's election chances.)
  2. Thousands Take Part in General Strike Over Greek Austerity Measures (This was actually a general strike that brought Greece to a halt but this is, after all, the Wall Street Journal.)
  3. Spaniards protest against austerity cuts (More than 250,000 people from nearly 100 different organisations.)
  4. The north hits back at Osborne’s austerity: ‘it’s devolution or bust’ (Newcastle takes a page from the Scots in talking about devolving tax power to regions/municipalities.)
