In the list of squares, the people from Coimbra updated us with the information about what is going to happen in Portugal on the 12th May. All media silence all the mobilizations that are taking place in the country, so here you have the summary of what it looks like a great mobilization day :-).
“Greetings everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been away from these mailing lists lately but the preparations and promotion of the Global Spring in Portugal is taking away the time of many of the activists involved, who unfortunately are not so many.
But, even being not so many, I would say that something big is being prepared. I think the biggest problem is that the Global Spring has still not appeared in the media – the only exception is an article about the Global Spring in Coimbra (our city) published in two local media and an internet mainstream informative website. Nothing about Lisboa, Porto and the other 3 (possibly 4) cities already preparing demonstrations. But there’s still one week left, it’s important that the groups at a global level fload all the media with info. The more information appears in spanish, french and english media, the more information will apear in the local media everywhere else.
Anyway, this is the good point. There will be actions in Portugal in 6 cities:
- Santarém: https://www.facebook.com/events/361011567273888/
Besides, there are people in at least one more city (Faro) that are working to organize something.
We are determined to make the Global Spring not only the May 12, but the whole May, specially between May 12 and May 15.
As thousands of people worldwide, we will take the streets to show our outrage and will of another world, and we will take the squares to build it! Portugal is on for the Global Spring!

A warm hug full of spring solidarity for everyone,
