Portugal Singing

In this photo taken Feb. 23, 2013, people gather at Lisbon's Largo do Carmo square to sing "Grandola, Vila Morena" (Grandola, Dusky Town) to mark the 26th anniversary of the death of it's author, Zeca Afonso. A Portuguese revolutionary song from 40 years ago is haunting the bailed-out country's government. Anti-austerity protesters are hounding senior officials by loudly singing at public events a celebrated tune from the 1974 Carnation Revolution. They have managed to silence some of their targets, including the prime minister when he was trying to give a speech in Parliament.
