Peaceful demonstration

We have seen in the news a crescendo of interest on today's demonstration,
and how it could go.

In the end, despite the announcement of more hard and harsh measures to
bring the budget deficit under control, despite interest rates in Government debt reaching
historical maximum in financial markets, all of it went peacefully in Lisbon, Oporto
and the other cities.

If the international press (and perhaps some national press as well) was hoping
for tears, blood and smashed windows of stores, nothing of that sort resulted.

Not sure what it means... but much better than having violence around, for sure.
