Thousands of demonstrators protested in Portugal today against salary cuts and public sector reforms planned in the government's 2014 budget under the country's international bailout deal. After nearly three years of belt-tightening, the budget aims to save a further 3.9 billion euros (5.3 billion USD), partly through cutting public sector salaries and pensions. The banner reads: 'Thieving and lying Government, the solution is to resign' AFP PHOTO / PATRICIA DE MELO MOREIRA (Photo credit should read PATRICIA DE MELO MOREIRA/AFP/Getty Images)
