he 39th anniversary of Portugal’s 1974 “revolution of the carnations” that
overthrew a 48-year-long dictatorship, was marked on April 25 by a huge
march against austerity in Lisbon ...

Large contingents from the PCP and Left Bloc, and also from the PS youth,
also marched. The Left Bloc contingent was joined by the Alexis Tsipras,
leader of the radical Greek coalition SYRIZA.
