LEST WE FORGET: PORTUGAL, 25 APRIL 1974 The Carnation Revolution
On the morning of April 25th 1974, as tanks rolled into Lisbon under the direction of the young officers of the Armed Forces Movement (AFM), hundreds of thousands of workers crowded the streets to celebrate the overthrow of the hated Caetano regime. This was no mere palace coup. In the words of The Sunday Times, “the crash made the statesmen and nations of at least two continents tremble. For like the single stone that starts an avalanche, Portugal’s coup may be more a beginning than an end of things.” The fascist regime in Portugal had lasted longer than any other of its kind. How was it able to maintain itself and what forces finally brought about its downfall?
