Students against cutback in education.

Ph.: Filipe Serralheiro

29th November was marked by yet another demonstration in the streets of Lisbon. This time the crowd was composed of higher education students.

15h was the time when hundreds of students gattered right above the Marquês de Pombal roundabout, from there they marched in a demonstration that passed in the streets of Lisbon, with the destination set at the stage of previous demonstrations and confrontations with the police, the Portuguese Parliament.

This time though the students gave the country a civic lesson, with around 500 students protesting in front of the parliament without any sort of violence, rendering the excepcional police logistics for the day unnecessary.

The students associative lider,  João Fonseca,  says that more important than the number of students involved  is the fact that the demonstration gattered the effort of 20 student associations national wide.

João Fonseca considered this is a step towards, in the future, the gathering of thousands of students in another demonstration.

Lisbon and the Tagus river

Last day we decided to go for a walk  in Lisbon with the camera and backpack. It was a rainy day, with clouds in the sky and, from time to time, they would open and let us have a glimpse of the sun.

Here´s what we got from that walk, hope you like it!
