The various libertarian and anti-authoritarian groups met up at 2.00pm in Praça
de Alvalade, located half-way along the route of the big CGTP demonstration.
The groups distributed propaganda material, sold or handed out their newspapers
and waved their red'n'black or black flags, as well as a huge banner with the
slogan "Peace among people, war on capital". There was some socializing with
the immigrants' associations that were near the libertarian group. For most of
the latter half of the big march, the libertarians were organized in a block,
and they paraded along while screaming their slogans. A few metres behind, a
sound system on one of the CGTP's trucks tried to drown out the voices of the
libertarians with the slogan "C-G-T-P, syndical unity". At one point, the
libertarians began to answer back with: "social revolution". They also shouted:
"here's only one revolutionary syndicalism - the revolutionary one and no
other" and "There's only one communism - libertarian communism". People in the
march stopped to lookd at us with curiosity but without hostility. There were
some positive aspects - the distribution of libertarian propaganda, for
example, or the flying of anarchist flags - but it was a demonstration for the
most part controlled by the reformist and authoritarian union tendency.
