CNN PRODUCER NOTE iReporter fcarrizo faced a long journey home from work after Wednesday's anti-austerity protests in Madrid, Spain, brought public transport almost to a standstill. "I work in the suburbs so had a normal day, but it was hard [getting through the city] as there was only one train every two hours," he said. "I had to stay all day at my work and couldn't get a bus home so had to take a cab." Our iReporter says that while he feels protesters who force businesses into closing on strike days go too far, he does not agree with the government's anti-austerity measures. "The government seems to have deaf ears," he said.
