Protest or Film?

Only a few more days of my Portugal-Family vacation remain. Today I’m quickly checking in with a video I captured in the Bica, downtown Lisbon, over the weekend. What initially looked like a demonstration coming way, very quickly turns out to be a scene from a film being shot in my neighborhood.

Kind of shame, looked like it would have been a great protest.

Flattr this!

    Kind of sad when the best protests are actually staged. Hmmm…

    Hi BicycleMark!
    I guess you were just waking up, weren’t you? Have you seen any policemen and armed forces around the demo? No? So easily one guesses that it was a set up. I mean it because in Lisboa it is also required to organize a “spontaneous” peacefull demonstration with the authorities and to follow the police orders…
    On the other hand, if it was one of this weary Lisbon weekends, I would have gone deeper and comment you latest comment saying that: “isn’t it all a big movie what we are living in this world? Don’t we forge roles or rn away from roles prepared for us all the time?”.
    But once I am in Denmark, and not so weary like that (‘Need a chance! ‘Need an upgrade! ‘Need a move!) I will read this post and leave this message with a simple smile on my face.
