Strike Day in Lisbon

Posted by len on May 30th, 2007

May 30, 2007, Lisbon – A 24-hour general strike called by Portuguese trade unions to protest the Socialist government’s liberal economic policies had a ‘limited impact’ on Wednesday, senior government official Paulo Campos said.

Our cute little street is starting to smell a bit ripe as garbage sits on the street, uncollected.
Sue had to walk the 45min or so to class today as the metro was all but shut down.
What a crazy world!
Here’s the full article I found on the strike, if you’re curious:

    Sue,
    Do you have to go through a rigorous final examination process to finish your training? Then what?

    Wow, yo’s.

    Takes me back to what I heard of NYC’s garbage strikes in the 1970’s.

    Hope all is working out well and not that fragrantly in your new apt.

    since it is a european city, can’t you just dump the garbage out the balcony with the excrement?
    just thought i’d ask.
