20,000 PSP police officers dispatched for Friday’s ‘yellow vest-type’ protest

Some 20,000 PSP police officers have been dispatched to patrol Lisbon on Friday, where a large-scale protest is due to take place along the A8 motorway.

More than 40,000 people have expressed their intention to participate in the yellow vest-type event, like the ones seen in France recently, while 14,000 said they would be going, after it was publicised on Social Media.


However, the Facebook event page calling for action in Portugal has been removed following a request by police.
