Text size Aa Aa

Thousands of demonstrators have marched through the Portugese capital Lisbon to protest about the 2013 budget which will bring more austerity to the country along with tax hikes.

The protesters want the budget to be examined by a constitutional tribunal but the government says it needs the cuts to comply with the terms of its 78 billion euro bailout.
