Isabel do Carmo.

In the early 70’s, under the backdrop of an inflatable Colonial War and the disenchantment caused by Marcelo Caetano’s ineffectiveness in accompanying the pulse of the country and the world, young political activists radicalized the struggle and brought it to the brink of violent confrontation with the regime.

Among these young people was Isabel do Carmo, founder of the Revolutionary Party of the Proletariat – Revolutionary Brigades, leader of the Revolution newspaper and spokesperson for the party. For this reason she was repeatedly arrested by the political police.

 

Conversation conducted by Ana Aranha.

With the presence of secondary school students and the community.
