After 47 years of dictatorship, in 1974, Portugal had the “Revolution of the Carnations”, witch brought freedom of speech and free press.
In 1932 António de Oliveira Salazar established a corporative dictatorship—the so-called Estado Novo (New State)—that lasted until 1974, four years after Salazar’s death. During the dictatorship, democratic-like institutions existed but were merely a façade, stacked with supporters of Salazar; political freedoms were suppressed, sometimes ruthlessly. Since the Revolution of the Carnations on April 25, 1974, Portugal has had a democratic republic.
On the 48th anniversary of this revolution, whose symbol is a carnation, we are witnessing the disappearance of several newspapers and media, which are essential for the maintenance of democracy in Portugal.
