AFP – Thousands demonstrated in Portugal Saturday against the government’s austerity measures amid projections that the economic situation is far worse than expected.
Government and private sector workers rallied in Lisbon and Porto, following a call by the country’s largest trade union federation to speak out against policies it says have devastated “jobs, workers, pensions and social rights.”
“No to price rises” and “No to the destruction of health care”, read banners hoisted by demonstrators marching through central Lisbon.
