Anti-austerity campaigners in Portugal are giving the prime minister’s personal tax number when paying for goods and services, in protest at a new anti-tax evasion law threatening fines of €2,000 for withholding tax details at point of sale.
The campaign is the latest in a series of imaginative protests in Portugal, Spain and other struggling eurozone countries that has led to the Portuguese prime minister being silenced in parliament by a song, and the similar disruption of public appearances by two ministers this week.High quality global journalism requires investment.

A recent surge in alternative protests in Portugal, often intended to be humorous, and co-ordinated through the social media by movements with names such as Que se lixe a Troika (Screw the Troika) and Os Indignados (The Indignant), marks a broadening of tactics by anti-austerity campaigners, who have also staged huge street protests.
Pedro Passos Coelho, the prime minister, said on Friday the protests of recent days were “not representative” of Portuguese society, which had shown “almost exemplary” and “mature” behaviour in the face of economic crisis.
Officials from the so-called troika of Portugal’s international lenders – the EU, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank – are due in Lisbon on Monday to assess the progress of the country’s €78bn bailout programme.
Protests have grown more vociferous in Portugal after the government acknowledged this week that the economy would contract by an estimated 2 per cent in 2013, double the 1 per cent contraction it had previously forecast.
The European Commission forecast on Friday that Portugal’s third consecutive year of recession would see unemployment rise to a record 17.3 per cent in 2013.
The Correio da Manhã newspaper reported that thousands of receipts falsely using the prime minister’s tax number had been submitted to the tax authorities under an electronic system that automatically registers the receipts issued by commercialHigh quality global journalism requires investment.

outlets.
The paper said his tax number had been circulated by email and mobile phone messages. Small retailers had no effective way of checking the authenticity of tax details given by customers, it added.
RTP television said the tax details of other ministers were also being circulated, while tax specialists warned that using other people’s tax numbers constituted a crime.
A new law that came into force in January, which makes consumers who do not ask for official receipts liable to fines, has sparked widespread opposition and is being condemned as unreasonable and unworkable.
In other protests, Mr Passos Coelho was interrupted last week during a speech to parliament when a group of protesters in the public gallery began singing a song made famous during Portugal’s 1974 revolution.
A keen amateur singer himself, the prime minister commented good-naturedly after police had cleared the gallery that “of all the ways of interrupting proceedings, this was in the best taste”.
On Wednesday, Paulo Macedo, health minister, was also temporarily silenced when demonstrators in the auditorium sang the same protest song, “Grândola, Vila Morena”, as he was addressing a conference at a medicine faculty.
On Tuesday, Miguel Relvas, minister for parliamentary affairs, was forced to abandon a planned speech at a Lisbon university amid noisy demonstrations by chanting and singing students.
The government said in a statement that protests of this nature would be “repudiated by all those who valued individual freedoms and the right to free expression”.
