#Portugal #Lissabon #Coronavirus #Protest

Thousands of workers have protested in Portugal for higher wages. At rallies in various cities across the country, they called for the minimum wage to be raised to 850 euros.
At 635 euros, it is currently lower than anywhere else in Western Europe. The protesters also called on the government to do more to secure jobs that are at risk due to the corona pandemic. The number of unemployed in Portugal had recently risen by a third to around 400,000.
The largest umbrella union in the country, the CGTP, called for the protest. The government of Prime Minister Antonio Costa has launched various projects aimed at getting companies through the virus crisis. This also includes measures to secure jobs.

#UnitedKingdom #London #Coronavirus #Protest

Thousands of people again demonstrated in London against the tightened measures taken by the British government against the corona pandemic. Image
A week after a similar mass rally on Saturday in Trafalgar Square, they denounced restrictions on civil liberties, criticized the closure of restaurants and rejected lockdown measures. Some even doubted there was a pandemic.
Rising numbers of infections, hospital admissions and deaths from the corona virus had caused the British government to tighten its measures. The UK has had the highest number of Covid-19 deaths in Europe at nearly 42,000.

Civil discontent leads to civil unrest, which leads to #protests and #counterprotests, and instead of restoring order, local #police stand down. Tensions rise, #violence escalates, and federal armies move in.

Who needs a government censor when the American people are already doing such a great job at censoring themselves and each other.
