Mason says that the protests are good-natured, though the Nazi-reference in the picture seems a bit hard to us. We imagine Merkel’s visit is causing extra sting due to the fact that a large number of unemployed Spanish have headed to Germany for work.

In a press conference in Spain today, Merkel said that she had “full confidence” in the Spanish government, the New York Times reports. She added, “I am not here to say what reforms need to be made in Spain.”
