Nurses, doctors, students, miners and members of Spain's 'indignant' movement against economic inequality join in the so-called 'citizens' tide' against the steep spending cuts and tax hikes imposed by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's conservative government to slash the public deficit. The day of protest coincides with the 31st anniversary of the failure of right-wing military coup that sought to crush Spain's young democracy and restore military rule.
