The world is immersed in a unbearable political and economical situation that plunged our communities into a deep social crisis. Portugal is no stranger to this unsupportable way of living, in a country growing older and with a poverty risk rate of 18,7% affecting nearly two million people, of which 29.8% are young people between 20 and 24 years. In 2013, unemployment rate in Portugal reached 16.2%. Wake is part of an illustration series that explores the state of today’s world, a reflection about shattered dreams, in a country unable to restore peace to our hearts.
