Speaking to journalists in Quarteira, Algarve, Catarina Martins said she considered it “absolutely outrageous” to see that, in the face of “galloping” inflation in the country, citizens are seeing their salaries and pensions reduced, while some companies present extraordinary profits.

“And the government says that the answer to inflation is to let wages and pensions get smaller and smaller. Now, this is not acceptable, this needs a civic upheaval. A shock that says that it cannot be those who work who have to pay for this inflation crisis, which is truly filling the pockets of some”, she stressed.
