April 25th: Freedom day!

Today we celebrate Freedom day.

 

On this day, in 1974, the country experienced a coup like no other, ending the dictatorship that struck Portugal for almost 40 years. What began as a military revolution quickly became a mass movement of civil unrest! A new constitution was introduced, the Portuguese colonialism was finished and civil liberty was back in order. The Carnation Revolution took the country by storm and initiated a new era in Portugal’s history!
