It's A Duck

Back street at Belém, Lisbon
I have no idea who the author is, but I think it's a clever work: as seen from a distance you can clearly see a duck with its head backwards
This post is linked to Monday Mural
The tile mural is a work by Pedrita (Rita João and Pedro Ferreira), design graduates from the Architecture Faculty of Lisbon’s Technical University.

European Day Of Action Against Austerity

Photo taken on the September 15 huge protest in Lisbon
A large-scale mobilisation across Europe is taking place today to alert the European leaders that the time for a change in course has already come. The day will take various forms in more than 20 countries: from simultaneous strikes through demonstrations to open forums and political and media action.
In Portugal and Spain a 24 hour general strike is in progress, the first Iberian strike in History.

Palace Of Belém

Official residence of the President of the Portuguese Republic, Lisbon
Actually this place looks very different today because of security measures in order not to let the crowd of protesters get near the palace: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the "Queen of Austerity", is having a meeting with the President.
