Shipyard workers protest in northern Spain.
Spanish IZAR shipyard workers roll a wooden spool before setting it alight during a protest in Gijon, northern Spain, November 22, 2004. The shipbuilders started a fresh round of protests after Brussels said last week they had rejected a draft agreement to salvage loss-making state-owned shipyards Izar. Spain's largest shipbuilder is threatened with collapse after Brussels demanded repayment of 975 million euros ($1.27 billion) of illegal public subsidies. REUTERS/Alonso Gonzalez PH/GB
