O jornalista do Guardian Jon Henley está há algumas semanas a viajar por Portugal, Espanha, Itália e Grécia, ouvindo as histórias de quem mais sente na pele as consequências da crise da dívida soberana europeia. Esta semana esteve em Lisboa, à conversa com os Indignados que amanhã, sábado, voltam a sair à rua (no âmbito do protesto mundial 15 de Outubro).
They are united by a desire for change.
"We believe that the people really do have the power. People think someone else will fix this, but we have to. The people who are supposed to find solutions, our elected representatives, clearly aren't. We have to show we're not merchandise in the hands of bankers and businessmen."
"Something has to change. We are not a rich country; the minimum wage here is just €485 – even in Greece it's €600. But taxes are going up, electricity's being hiked by 30%, public transport too. People are getting desperate. There's real despair. I have many friends who are thinking of emigrating."
