Spanish trade unions demonstrate for strong public broadcasting

On 7 February 2013, various Spanish trade unions, among them EFJ member unions Confederación Sindical de Comisiones Obreras (CC.OO)  and the Federation of Unions of Journalists (FeSP), took to the streets of Madrid their protest against the national Spanish government's plan to change the law on Audiovisual policy.
