MADRID Pensioners Take To The Streets To Protest About Their Pensions
Juan Antonio Herranz, the spokesman for the General Coordination of Pensioners of Madrid, led a protest of around 100 pensioners through the streets of Madrid on Saturday 20, armed with banners and placards, to demonstrate “in defense of the public pension system”.
The pensioners marched from Puerta del Sol to the Congress of Deputies, and Juan Antonio Herranz voiced his indignation at the progress of the Toledo pacts, which he claims “in no way guarantee decent pensions”.
Calling on the general public, he said that through social mobilization and the presence of the so-called alternative unions, the group wants people to realise that pensions “are not the exclusive problem of pensioners, but of the entire population, and therefore calls on society as a whole”, to support their cause.
