LISBON - About 40,000 people marched in Portugal on Saturday as part of a global day of protest against the financial elite and hundreds broke through a police cordon around the parliament in Lisbon to occupy its broad marble staircase.

It was one of the biggest turn-outs in any country and followed the center-right government's announcement on Thursday of a new batch of austerity measures.

"This debt is not ours!" and "IMF, get out of here now!", they chanted.
