For the first time since the beginning of the current crisis of 2008, Europena European trade unions are calling for a Europe-wide demonstration on the 29th of September 2010. The demonstration aims at showing the trade unions opposition to austerity plans. In Spain, a general strike will take place at the same day - against a labour reform, and the European Social Forum mobilises to bringing back the social question into to the EU agenda.
