A student who joined the Communist Party while in the Lyceum D. João de Castro, with 17 years old. She was suspended as a student of the Faculty of Letters for the prominence she had in the academic struggle of the years leading up to the April Revolution.
Helena Neves was a member of the founding group of the Democratic Movement for Women (MDM) and met the first arrest by the PIDE in 1969, when she had been nominated by the MDP / CDE as a candidate for a congressional position in the Santarém circle. Arrested again in the early days of April 1974 and therefore felt the greatest joy of the prisoners – that of being rescued by the liberators of the April Revolution.

Conversation conducted by Ana Aranha.
