Book presentation “Don’t be fooled!”

“Moved by the growing wave of obscurantism, backwardness, and fascism that is advancing around the world, as a gesture of reaction, I came up with this story about a child who lived through the transition from fascism to democracy in Portugal and who therefore knows very well that there is nothing worse than living under a regime like the old one,” says Pelágio. Don’t be fooled! – a pamphletary tale of 2019″ is therefore a tribute to the generation of fathers and mothers born in the 1930s who, without seeking a place in history, political prominence or any other kind, never resigned themselves, risked their lives, went to prison, went into exile, and were persecuted so that we can live today in a better country. Without ever forgetting that, today as yesterday, we need to be aware of the tides!”
