    POLICE CLASHED WITH STONE-THROWING STUDENTS ON THE MADRID UNIVERSITY CAMPUS TODAY (FRIDAY). ThE UNIVERSITY PROTEST CAME AT A TIME OF WIDESPREAD LABOUR DISSATISFACTION CAUSED BY INFLATION, LABOUR LAYOFFS AND SHUTDOWNS IN SPAIN.

    SPAIN'S MOST POWERFUL UNDERGROUND LABOUR MOVEMENT CALLED A SERIES OF WORKER'S DEMONSTRATIONS TODAY TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ECONOMIC SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY.

    SECURITY FORCES WERE POSTED IN SEVERAL INDUSTRIAL AREAS, AND ALSO AT MADRID UNIVERSITY, WHERE STUDENTS HAVE SHOWN SYMPATHY FOR THE WORKER'S STAND.

    IN THEIR CLASH WITH THE STUDENTS, POLICE -- MANY MOUNTED ON HORSEBACK -- SQUIRTED WATER CONTAINING BLUE DYE. STUDENTS SHOUTING "LIBERTY" AND FRANCO NO" HURLED STONES AT POLICE FROM FACULTY DOORWAYS.

    MORE THAN 2,000 STUDENTS HAD EARLIER ATTENDED A MEETING IN WHICH THEY HAD VOTED TO JOIN WORKERS' DEMONSTRATIONS THAT EVENING.
