From Global Uprisings:
On November 14th 2012, thousands of people took to the streets of
Portugal as part of a European wide general strike. Until recently,
the International Monetary Fund held Portugal as an ideal example of
the effectiveness of austerity policies, but today, its economy is
heading in the same direction as Greece and Spain. This short
documentary details the week of the November 14th strike in Lisbon and
the events surrounding it.
