Massive anti-government and anti-austerity marches in Portugal

Hundreds of thousands of people protested in Lisbon and other cities against austerity dictated by an international bailout of the economy. Demonstrators demanded the resignation of the centre-right government. Although these demonstrations were apparently peaceful, travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without warning.
