Protests in Spain - level 1

30-04-2013 06:00

There are many people with no job in Spain. Twenty-five percent of the people don’t have a job. The situation is very bad. People don't like this situation.

People protested in Madrid. In the beginning, the protest was without the problems. Later, people started to fight the police. Fourteen policemen were injured. Fifteen people were taken to a police station.

Spain has problems with its money. The government will try to change something. But people don’t like the changes from this government. So the people will protest again in the future.

Interesting words: be injured (have problems with body), government (bosses of a country).
