The second general strike this year hit Spain with protesters marching in several cities against sweeping austerity measures and high unemployment, scenes echoed elsewhere in Europe. Spain, the eurozone's fourth-biggest economy, is suffering 25 percent unemployment, with the rate even higher amongst young people.
