Hundreds of people working in Portugal’s culture industry gathered in Lisbon on Saturday to protest recent government measures to combat COVID-19 and to call for the government to save it from imminent collapse. The protest was organized by the Association of Promoters of Shows, Festivals and Events (APEFE) and took place a day after Portugal’s parliament voted to approve the president’s request to extend the state of emergency imposed to help combat COVID-19 for an additional 15 days.
