Close to 15,000 demonstrators according to the organisers (7,500 according to police) marched on 21 June in Luxembourg City to protest against "European economic governance" and to voice a "massive ‘no’ to austerity," as theVoix du Luxembourg headline explains. Organised by the European Trade Union Confederation, the "euro-demonstration" attracted protesters from Luxembourg, "from the state’s near neighbours, and countries further afield such as Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Lithuania etc." The demonstrators’ goal was to send a message to MEPs, who, on 23 and 24 June, will vote on a package of economic governance measures.
