    May Day in Lisbon

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     TTeixeira shot these photos of May 1 street demonstrations in Lisbon, Portugal, in solidarity with International Workers Day, also known as May Day. 'The demonstrators seemed strong in their convictions, but this day was specially used to show the people's discontent, and an alert to the government,' she said. 'There is obviously the will to carry on future changes, and these have to be guaranteed by the people organized in groups of interest, not the government any more!'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    The public demonstration was a success. People gathered and celebrated the first May. It was a great civic event. Groups with differing agendas banded together for the main demonstration at Alameda.The posted photos correspond to a group that started in Praça Luís de Camões and then joined the other marches.
