Lives in the Resistance – António Paulo and the group of peasants who fought for the 8 hours of work per day in Alentejo

05 December 2018

Today, the auditorium of the Aljube was too small to contain the large curious audience (students and the community) and to record the wisdom, irony and poetry that jumped from the words and face of António Paulo. He was accompanied by some women from the Ribeira do Sado, who shared their living memories of the harshness of the working conditions in the rice fields of Alcácer. And also, the memory of the struggle for the 8 hours of work in the fields, in May 1962.

The full video record will soon be available in the Documentation Centre of the Museum.
