Fresh austerity protests hit Portugal

Several thousand protesters took to the streets of Lisbon on Saturday in the latest demonstration against the austerity policies of Portugal’s centre-right government. “Living conditions in Portugal are only getting worse as a result of unfair policies. We’ve had enough of this government,” said Jorge Macau, 35, a local government worker who had travelled from the southeastern region of Evora. A three-year bailout European Union and International Monetary Fund bailout programme that ended last month forced stringent reforms on Portugal in exchange for 78 billion euros ($106 billion) to avert bankruptcy.
