Thousands of Spanish doctors, nurses and other health care workers, many wearing white lab coats, demonstrated today in 16 cities against budget cuts and plans to partly privatise medical services. 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 banner reads: 'In defense of the pulic health care, no privatisation, no cuts.' AFP PHOTO / JOSEP LAGO (Photo credit should read JOSEP LAGO/AFP/Getty Images)
