Portugal - Massive protest against Uber - April 30, 2016

The taxi-drivers organised nationwide action on 29 April to protest against the existence of the app-summoned, private ride-providing service Uber. Taxis in the main cities staged a go-slow on Friday, crawling along the cities’ main stretches to draw attention to their cause. Earlier on, the country’s two largest taxi organisations, FTP and ANTRAL, launched a week of protest action, with a campaign in which they urge taxi-users and professionals to unite in ‘the fight against Uber’. In their joint manifesto, which has been sent to Parliament, the associations argue that Uber is illegal because the service does not respect, obey, nor does it submit to, legal rules which regulate the activity of taxi transportation.
