General Strike in Portugal in 24 November

16 November 2011

“We are facing a programme of true aggression against the workers, people and country. The measures presented are a calamity. If implemented, they would plunge the country even deeper in economic recession (with the government admitting that it may be around 3% in 2012), which, instead of reducing it, will only increase the debt burden.

With a deeper recession, we will enter a destructive cycle of austerity policies, added recession and higher debt, repeating what is already happening, namely in Greece, with disastrous outcomes for the workers, people and country, which are very visible today.”
