I was in Lisbon over last weekend. On Monday (26th September), everywhere I went there were groups of about 20 kids (say 14-16 years old), largely in black school(?) uniform but others not; some carried cloaks with loads of scout-type badges on. Every group seemed to have a cheerleader with a megaphone who led them in chanting. This went on all day with no obvious focus of activity. But at the end of the afternoon some of the groups headed for Rossio square and laid their badge-bedecked cloaks on the pavement. Then by about 4:30 they all went home. Very strange to my eyes but nobody local batted an eyelid. Does anyone know what that was all about?
