  • Pensioners had spent three weeks walking to the capital from Cadiz and Bilbao

Two columns of pensioners, who had marched from Cadiz in the south and Bilbao in the north, arrived in Madrid this week in their good-natured protest against the levels of pension, calling for it to at least match the minimum wage.

On Wednesday, the final act of their three-week journey was outside the Congreso de los Diputados parliament building.
