October 18, 2011 – PORTUGAL- In a shocking move of solidarity, the Portuguese military has sided with the global Occupy Wall Street movement by supporting their protesters versus those who have repressed society through tyranny, oppression and mass eugenics.
As reported on Russia Today, Portugal joined the global Occupy Together movement:
The following was translated from Portugal’s Económico website:
Antonio Lima Coelho admits that “for ordinary people is very difficult to fail to meet their commitments, but to a soldier who is obliged to comply with the laws of the Republic is much more serious.”
The military thus ensure that “serve the Portuguese people and not private institutions,” and warns, “Let no one dare to think that the armed forces can be used in the repression of social upheaval that these measures may cause.”
Asked about a possible hardening of the protests by the military, the Association adds that “revolutions do not announce themselves when they come, they come because they have arrived, but I hope the good of the rule of law ever such a scenario will be put “he concludes.
Recall that last month Passos Coelho was keen to stress in the speech he chose for the closing session of the Party of the People in Campo Maior, that “in Portugal, there are right to protest, no right to strike. These are rights that are enshrined in the Constitution and who have earned widespread consensus in Portugal.”
However, at the time warned the prime minister, “those who think they can shake things up in order to turn the period we are living in a war with the government,” when there is “a war against the delay, the debt and waste, “they” know what we know to talk, but we also know to decide.”
In the United States, former military men have also joined the protest as evidenced from a story that was first reported on in5d.com on October 1, 2011.
