PORTUGAL : 50,000 Peacefully Protest Austerity In Lisboa.


     With some shouting 'Go to hell troika, we want our lives back'...perhaps 50,000 protested peacefully in Lisboa against a 78 billion euro bailout...and the severe austerity measures attached to the aid.
     The protest was organized by Portugal's biggest union.
     The center right government recently backed down from a social security tax hike after widespread criticism.
