Naked Spanish Firefighters Protest Budget Cuts [Pics] [Video] #SpainFire

Spanish Firefighters go naked to protest budget cuts

Left With Nothing

Naked firefighters protest the Spanish government's $80 billion in cuts to public sector wages, as well as tax increases, inside their fire station in Mieres, near Oviedo, northern Spain, July 19, 2012. The banner reads, "So many cuts have left us with nothing."
The new austerity measures, recently announced by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, were one of the conditions met so that the financially strapped nation can receive $120 billion in bailout money from Eurozone countries. These are the biggest cuts Spaniards have had to endure in the country's democratic history
