António de Jesus Paulo and the fight for the 8 hours of work in the fields of Alentejo

“In April 1962, in Berlanja, people – in that estate – demonstrated for the eight hours of work but it did not work. (…)

“The real fight for the eight hours of work started here. (…) José Lopes and I began by inciting the women and the foremen, to make them aware so that they could also be part of the great fight we were preparing for the eight hours of work.”
