The Placid People

Bookmark and Share
  Portugal, one of the most unequal countries in Europe is going through
the throes of austerity but this doesn't concern the rich who do not
pay taxes or do pay as little as they can; so it's up to the people, those
who get up at five to make a living, to pay their taxes and fill in
impossible forms. In 1972 there was a revolution in Portugal, a friendly
one, no one got killed and guns were loaded with roses. Nevertheless,
those who had gained from 40 years of dictatorship fled to Brazil and
modestly returned after a few years...They have got their property back
and rule the politicians, life is just like it used to be, the elite are back in
power and their children rule the media to keep the people passive,
idiotic programs are played on the TV. Portugal needs a new revolution
where a young generation is in charge, I hope that will
eradicate corruption and bring in true equality for all the people.
