Demonstrators march past Christmas decorations in downtown Lisbon on Wednesday on their way to the finance ministry. They are protesting the government's proposal to increase the hours of work in a week. Portugal needed a $103 billion bailout earlier this year as its high debt load pushed it close to bankruptcy. The government is enacting an austerity program of pay cuts and tax hikes. The posters say "Increase in the work hours is robbing in the salary." (Associated Press)
