Thousands march in Portugal to protest austerity
March 3, 2013

“If the government pays attention to what is happening and understands that the people are against them, they should get out,” said Serafin Lobato, 65. “If not, this won’t stop.”

Portugal is expected to endure a third straight year of recession in 2013, with a 2 percent contraction. The overall jobless rate has grown to a record 17.6 percent.

The marches were powered mostly by young people. Unemployment among people under 25 is close to 40 percent.

The country’s largest trade union, the General Confederation of Portuguese Workers, with some 600,000 members, also supported the marches and swelled numbers.

After several years of tax increases and welfare cuts, austerity is poised to deepen as the government looks for another €4 billion ($5.2 billion) to cut over the next two years, with the national health service, education, pensioners and government workers likely to be the hardest hit.

“There is no future without education, there is no future without culture,” said student Ana Julia, 23. “We have to protest to get back what they are trying to take away from us.”

The government is locked into debt-cutting measures in return for the €78 billion ($102 billion) financial rescue set up in 2011. More tax hikes this year sliced another chunk off wages.

“If you throw one stone, it’s a punishable offense. If 1,000 stones are thrown, it’s political action. If you set a car on fire, it’s a punishable offense. If hundreds of cars are set on fire, it’s a political action. Protest is when I say I don’t agree with something. Resistance is when I ensure that things with which I disagree no longer take place.“

Students Physically Attacked for "Mic-Checking" Pro-Israel Talk in New Mexico - The Atlantic ⇢

socialismartnature:

It says a lot about Zionist supporters of Israel that their immediate response to a non-violent “mic check” by Occupy Albuquerque and Palestine solidarity activists is to make recourse to brute violence and physical intimidation.

I mean, can one even imagine the media and political frenzy if a group of Palestinians or Muslims physically assaulted Zionist students in such a way at a campus event? They’d be labelled terrorists and probably sitting in jail right now …

===

A group of University of New Mexico students “mic checked” an Israel Alliance talk on their campus Thursday night, when audience members got up out of their seats and physically attacked the protesting students.

“Mic check! Nonie Darwish speaks for Israeli apartheid!,” yell the students at around 15 seconds into the video.  ”And genocide at the hands of the IDF [Israeli army]!” From there, older male audience members begin to slowly walk their way up to the students (some of them young women), and start physically pushing and attacking them. At 55 seconds in, you can see one of the students goes flying over a row of seats.

We’re still trying to gather the facts on this story, but according to the promotional flyer (right),  the title of the talk was “Why the Arab Spring Is Failing” and was being lead by speaker Nonie Darwish.  

According to uploader of the video, the students eventually filed a police report.  (Un)Occupy Albuquerque has this statement on the video:

“A group of people, who were acting in solidarity with the Palestinian people, questioned Darwish’s fear-mongering and her unqualified support for Israel. They were shouted down by pro-Israel members in the audience, who assaulted a woman, pulled her hair, and forcibly pushed another person over a row of seats. A third person was punched in the face. Pro-Israel members also destroyed a phone that was used to record the assault.”

Old white men yelling “U-S-A” to defend Zionism!?!
