Thousands March in London to Protest Austerity Measures

Thousands of people took to the streets of London Saturday to protest the British government's plan to cut millions of pounds from public spending.
The austerity measures aim to address UK's debt after the country's deficit grew following the 2008 financial crisis.
Social activists, union leaders and campaign groups joined forces to protest cuts in public services, welfare and education that are expected when the government unveils its budget next month. Demonstrators argue the public is being punished for a crisis it did not cause.
Stop the War coalition member Lindsey German said the main parties that support austerity have made the rich richer and the poor poorer.
