You have your freedom to protest and people use their rights. That is democracy...

Were they protesting economic discrepancy?

Sometimes it's the only way to get attention on an issue.

I find it creepy as well as powerful. Not sure I'd be won over by the message in the atmosphere.

That's a beautiful mural. I love the flow created by the clothing, color, graphics, and postures. Things are heating up here too but only in "minority" communities. I don't understand why the middle class does not get involved as they are under attack as well. I didn't make this up but can't remember the source "the politics of oppression turns the oppressed against themselves."

Interesting mural.

I imagine so much unrest comes from Portugal's economic situation? It's a good mural, a tough time.

Almost 3000 demonstrations to preserve and promote jobs? Here all you get is the occasional protest and lots of professional lobbying. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
