Portugal main union considering general strike-INTERVIEW

Portugal's largest labour union is considering calling a general strike as it steps up protests against painful austerity measures that are expected to deepen under an EU/IMF bailout, its leader said on Thursday.

"A general strike is an instrument that is on the agenda," Manuel Carvalho da Silva, leader of the 725,000-strong General Confederation of Portuguese Workers (CGTP), told Reuters.

"This is not the time to be silent. It has to be the time for protest, action and responses," he said.

Hell yeah it's time to fight back!

You can do it Portuguese people! Fight against your sell out government and the banking scum trying to enslave your country economically.

Protests have mounted in Portugal during the sovereign debt crisis, but remained peaceful so far. Several hundred thousand marched in two rallies in Lisbon last month and public transport workers have staged intermittent strikes for weeks.

Peaceful for how long?

too bad CGTP and its opposing faction UGT are and have been just tools of the same corrupted governamental and finantial partners.

they all give out a sense of opposition but when it comes the time, they all fall back in place to further the same agenda.

im sad to say in general we are a tame people, we have been kicked for so long that it sort of gives us an endurance to oppression, but no real will to overcome it.

the spanish will start a new civil war for less than we are being

says alot

All of these outcomes were predicted. The US, EU, all other Unions and NAFTA like agreements. These are all calculated to do exactly what they are doing and the end result will be world currency and new deal for people. It really is not hard to see that this was all the results of Long/Mid/Short term plans designed to do specific things.

If you can not see this then and feel I am wrong, then I am wrong...from your perspective. It's all by design and I just want to add that I never said the new deal will be a good one.
