Saturday March on Lisbon streets

(All photos by Sailor Girl)
While strolling yesterday around Chiado, Lisbon, looking for some more grafittis and stencil paintings to photograph, I was caught by a march of people asking for more union and labour rights. It was quite impressive (almost 5000 people from all over the country), and they looked happy to be there singing and shouting and expressing themselves and their indignation towards some Government measures, something that 35 years ago would not be allowed...
