[Video] Portuguese people fight back against austerity measures of the troika

Rui Faustino is a librarian and a civil servant in Lisbon. He talks about the economic crisis in Portugal as part of the general crisis of European capitalism. The government is implementing the demands of the troika (IMF, ECB, EU) by attacking the conditions and rights of the workers and youth, which leads to a social disaster. Meanwhile unemployment is rising to a record high. The workers and youth fought back on several occasions with demonstrations and general strikes. He is proposing a united front of the Left Block (Bloco de Esquerda) and the Communist Party against the austerity measures in breaking with the capitalist conception of Europe.
