The People’s History of the Portuguese Revolution

Raquel Varela: “What we saw in Portugal in 1974 and 1975 was men and women fighting together, Black and White people fighting together, shanty towns and highly qualified workers fighting together. The working class was able to have a universal project of changing society. Contrary to Stalinism in the 30s, the Portuguese road to socialism was full of liberty. It shows that workers can take power, can organize themselves within liberty.”

Tive a honra de passar pela mesma entrevista onde muitos anos antes esteve o nosso mestre das People’s History, Howard Zinn, o historiador que fundou as histórias do povo. O programa norte-americano de rádio ThisisHell, onde dei esta entrevista que aqui vos deixo em link, a partir da publicação do meu livro História do Povo na Revolução Portuguesa (Bertrand), The People’s History of the Portuguese Revolution (Pluto Press).
