A picture taken on December 16, 2012 shows banners hanging on the La Paz Hospital in Madrid before a protest against government's health cuts and privatization plans. Nationally, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's government has slashed health spending by seven billion euros (9.1 billion USD) a year as part of a campaign to squeeze 102 billion euros out of the crisis-racked country's budget by 2014. The Madrid regional government plans to privatize six hospitals and 27 health centres of the 270 in the region. The banners read: 'Our health is our pride and the pride of all' (top), 'They sell your health' (C), 'Warning: Health authorities can be harmful to health!' (R) and 'We are the hospital of the benefits' (bottom). AFP PHOTO / PEDRO ARMESTRE (Photo credit should read PEDRO ARMESTRE/AFP/Getty Images)
