Por­tuguese street revolt

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

POR­TU­GAL’S dis­grun­tled Face­book gen­er­a­tion, in­spired by a pop song , marched in a dozen cities to vent its frus­tra­tion at grim ca­reer prospects amid an acute eco­nomic cri­sis that shows no sign of abat­ing.

Some 30,000 peo­ple, mostly in their 20s and 30s , crammed into Lis­bon’s main down­town av­enue on Satur­day, called onto the streets by a so­cial me­dia cam­paign that har­nessed a broad sense of dis­af­fec­tion.
