5 years ago35 views

Spanish coal miners rallied in Madrid on Thursday to protest against spending cuts in the mining sector.

The government is slashing subsidies to the industry from 300 million euros to 110 million.

Some 8,000 people are employed in the 40 remaining mines across Spain.

The two unions that organised the march said a similar number took part on Thursday.
