Between 50 percent and 100 percent of auto workers joined the strike during the night shift and activity halted at nearly all metal works, Spain's Comisiones Obreras union said in a statement.

Protesters continued to march today through Madrid, where police increased security around buildings including the city hall and Parliament. Another protest is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in Madrid.
