Portuguese yellow vest protest flops, fails to block traffic

A nationwide protest in Portugal that seeks to emulate France's yellow vest movement has fallen flat, with few people turning out

Portuguese protesters are attempting to disrupt morning rush-hour traffic at various locations across the country Friday, but they are far outnumbered by police.

Organizers say the Portugal Yellow Vest Movement is non-violent and not aligned with any political party, though at least one fringe party was conspicuous at a demonstration in Lisbon.

France's protest movement turned radical and violent.
