Tens of thousands of people are out on the streets of Barcelona protesting against the austerity cuts.
There are lots of families, students and union members. Plenty of firecrackers are going off but everything appears peaceful.
Police and protesters clashed in Spain, Italy and Portugal as millions of workers went on strike to challenge to austerity policies.
As well as strikes across Europe, today has also produced figures that may convince people at the top that austerity is self-defeating.
