Anti-austerity protests in Portugal

While thousands of people particpated in anti-austerity protests in Spain, similar protests erupted in Lisbon. Although peaceful, there is anger this month with a hike in social security taxes that threaten to end Portugal's so far high social acceptance for austerity. Travellers are advised to use caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
