Iconic café in downtown Lisbon dating back to 1905
Two days ago this place was the stage for police brutality as we haven't seen in years. There is plenty of material on the net but I have chosen this shot showing how this beast in uniform is hitting someone who was just doing her job. Another journalist was severely beaten and taken to a hospital, not to mention the number of injured protesters.
