Thousands march against austerity in Portugal
Thousands of people have marched in Lisbon to protest the austerity measures the government has been compelled to adopt in return for a 78 billion euro ($105.6 billion) bailout reached in 2011.
Saturday's march to Parliament, which was peaceful, was in support of a civic movement called "Screw the Troika."
Troika refers to the three bailout creditors — Portugal's fellow eurozone members, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund — that have helped Portugal during its financial crisis. (AP)
