Class Struggles of the Portuguese Revolution: A View Through Graphic Art
On the 40th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution, Sharat G. Lin takes a look at the explosion of political activism and party formation triggered by overthrow of the dictatorship of Marcelo Caetano on April 25, 1974 by disaffected mid-level army officers. The nonviolent mutiny not only opened the way for free elections and ended Portuguese colonialism in Africa and Timor, but at its peak actually effected the nationalization, land reforms, collectivization, and worker takeovers of as much as 80 per cent of the productive capacity of the country. This period of epic upheaval and gradual undoing is viewed through the graphic art of the Processo Revolucionário Em Curso (PREC) or Ongoing Revolutionary Process.
Dr. Sharat G. Lin writes on global political economy, the Middle East, South Asia, labor migration, and public health. He is a contributing author to the book Studies in Inequality and Social Justice. He spent two months in Tahrir Square during 2009-2012, including during the initial uprising that overthrew President Mubarak. He is a research fellow at the San José Peace and Justice Center.
