EU Debt Crisis: Spanish Unions Threaten General Strike

Will they turn violent like Greece?

Spain's unions threatened to call a general strike to protest austerity measures aimed at reducing the country's deficit back to EU guidelines and calming markets.

"We radically reject this austerity plan and both unions are starting protests that could lead to a general strike very soon," Ignacio Fernandez Toxo, the general secretary of Spain's biggest union Comisiones Obreras (CCOO), told reporters on Thursday.
