A "white tide" of Spaniards swept through Madrid today protesting against plans to privatise parts of the public health service.
It's the second major demonstration on the issue - named after the colour of medical clothes.
The Madrid region is planning to sell off six of its 20 large hospitals and 10 per cent of its public health centres as part of deep austerity cuts.
But many are sceptical about the regional government's motives.
Independent Civil Service Trade Union Centre president Jose Gabriel Gonzalez Martin said a number of former government health officials have recently got jobs with private health companies which are lining up to profit from the deal.
