Portugal: half a million a spontaneous demonstration against the authorities of the country, organized via the Internet (photos)

Following the events of Tunisia, Egypt and other Southern Med States where a popular people’s movement was started over the Facebook and Social networks, a small group of Portuguese youth started up a Facebook page-calling for a million people march on the main street in Lisbon, Avenida da Liberdade, for March 12th 2011, to fill up the entire street. They called themselves the “Geracao A Rasca” or the “Angry Generation”.  Most people thought it was a joke but the emails, Twitters and SMSs went on and on and went around until lots of people began to take it seriously.
