Over 2,000 judges strike to protest Justice Ministry reforms

Organizers put adhesion rate at 66 percent, but official data says less than half of Spain’s magistrates observed stoppage

Not a profession given to going on strike, thousands of judges and prosecutors failed to show up for work across Spain on Wednesday in order to protest a rash of recent reforms undertaken by Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón.

Many gathered outside the main doors of the country’s courtrooms to voice their protests over such diverse issues as disproportionate new legal fees, the elimination of locum judges and the proposed reform of the CGPJ legal watchdog.

Official data from the CGPJ put turnout among judges at 40.23 percent — 2,013 out of 5,015 magistrates — while strike organizers gave a figure of 66 percent, though that included both judges and prosecutors.
