Protest against renovation of Burgos bullring ends in violent clash with police

Protesters in the town of Burgos in northern Spain were out on the streets Saturday, protesting against the renovation of the "Plaza de Toros," or bullring in the city.  

They feel that in times of economic crisis, and with severe austerity measures imposed by the government, money should be put to a better use.

The protests led to violence, as police beat protesters with batons, as the protesters themselves smashed bank and shop windows and ATMs.
