Lisbon On Strike: November 14th in Portugal



By Brandon Jourdan, Luhuna Carvalho, and Marianne Maeckelbergh

On November 14th 2012, thousands of people took to the streets of Portugal as part of a European wide general strike. Until recently, the International Monetary Fund held Portugal as an ideal example of the effectiveness of austerity policies, but today, its economy is heading in the same direction as Greece and Spain. This short documentary details the week of the November 14th strike in Lisbon and the events surrounding it.

      This last part was actually a propaganda scene organized by the government. They used agents provocateurs undercover to start that little riot and let the police being there for few hours being bombarded with stones for the television channels to film (captivating the public opinion against the protestors). Finally they order the dogs to advance against everyone: demonstrators and non-demonstrators, adults, old, children, men, women, without any mercy. One day before the general strike the salaries of the stick-men were raised in order to motivate them to using better their stick.
      They wanted with that less participation in future demonstrations but instead on the protest after this one there were many more protestors.
      I want to see now what will happen on the 25th of April (Portuguese revolution day) and on the 1st of May.
