Thousands of people took to the streets this week to protest government austerity measures in Lisbon, Portugal. The austerity protesters resorted to taking buses to cross landmark April 25th Bridge, after the government denied them permission to march across the bridge. The demonstration was called by Portugal’s main union CGTP, General Confederation of Portuguese Workers, against the government’s austerity measures. The protesters want Portugal’s Constitutional Court to reject the 2014 budget bill.
