Freedom Day

As every year, on the 25th April, thousands of people marched down Avenida da Liberdade (Liberty Avenue), in Lisbon, to mark the anniversary of the Carnation Revolution which, in 1974, returned to the Portuguese people the freedom that had been seized, for 48 years, by the fascist dictatorship.

As every year, MPPM joined the march to remind everybody that, as Nelson Mandela had put it, the freedom we were celebrating was incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.

And our cry Palestina Vencerá! (Palestine Will Win!) was echoed by those participating in the march and by the many more that occupied the sidewalks all along the avenue.
