Portugal: Unionists Take to the Streets in Protest

Following the biggest popular protest of the last decades in Portugal, on September 15, 2012, every week people have been taking to the streets. More demonstrations were called for September 29, “against the theft of wages, pensions and retirements” by the union confederation CGTP. On Twitter hashtags #29s, #29sPT – and still #QueSeLixeaTroika (ScrewTroika) – are being used.
