Last Saturday, Sept. 15th 2012, there were major protests in the streets all over Portugal because of the austerity measures the Portuguese government
is trying to implement against the people.
I know that things are not easy over here but this is such an unfair situation mostly because they put EVERY efforts over people shoulders, while the
ones who really caused the problems are still being spare.
Therefore we had about 500000 people in the streets, only in Lisbon.
In one of the most tense moments in front of MIF building there were several policeman to protect the place against the angry crowd. Yet, they were
with the people but they still had to do their job.
Bellow, there is a beautiful little story that happened during that moment....
Adriana is an 18 years old art student. This was the 1st protest she attended in her life. She has no party, believes in peace and that is possible to
live in a world without money.
She looks at one of the cops in the eyes. Sad eyes that she could see well because he wasn`t wearing the protection helmet glass at the moment.
Then she moves next and gives him a hug asking "What are you doing here ?" ...He answers: "Because It`s my Job"
"Don`t you prefer to be in the people`s side ?", she asks. He looks in front and says nothing. A few seconds after he gently says "enough" and moves
back instead of pushing her out.
The picture of this moment was taken and is becoming very popular all over the internet, so I`d like to share it here as well. Hope you like it.
Sorry for my bad english
NO, It`s not a picture of a movie
