Protesters are de­mand­ing a stop to gov­ern­ment cut­backs, along with new hir­ings and per­ma­nent sta­tus for col­leagues on short­term con­tracts. They also want the gov­ern­ment to honor a rul­ing last year by the Coun­cil of State which deemed the wage cuts seen by mem­bers of the armed forces and emer­gency ser­vices in 2012 to be un­con­sti­tu­tional.
