About 100,000 workers carrying red flags and banners marched through the center of Rome on Saturday to protest rising unemployment and demand the resignation of Prime Minister Giuliano Amato. "This demonstration is for work and against Amato," said Massimo D'Alema, from the Democratic Party of the Left, the former Communist Party. The government has not released recent unemployment figures, but the jobless rate stood at 11.3% at the end of last year.

MADRID -- Millions of workers went on strike and joined anti-austerity protests throughout much of southern Europe on Wednesday, in the first joint labor action across countries suffering the worst of the continent's debt crisis.
