Sample text

The bourgeoisie pursues the logic of its options: it will die as its world disappears. The independence of our countries will bring about its destruction. It has no choice but to continue the war at any cost. The armed insurrection of the Angolan people, in February 1961, aroused at first a homogeneous reaction in Portugal: the propaganda apparatus of the regime, counting on patriotic sentiments with racist overtones, and taking advantage of the absence of an anti-colonialist political consciousness, was able to bring the Portuguese people to approve of 'killing Blacks'.

This is to say that we consider imperialist countries as a core in the general framework of the world economy. They have created on their periphery countries dominated by imperialism. If a country was still at a non-capitalist stage of development, the domination was purely colonialist. If such a country had already certain beginnings of capitalism, the domination was neo-colonialist, or semi-colonial. Thus imperialism, or rather the domination of people by financial capital, operates in colonialist, neo-colonialist, or semi colonialist forms.

It is obvious that a complete evaluation of the impact of the colonial war must consider the qualitative differences that have emerged within Portuguese society, as a result of the fighting on three fronts which are taking their toll in increasing casualty rates and exhaustion. In the last analysis, it will only be in the reaction of the population to these realities that we can expect a mobilization against the colonial war in Portugal. Conclusions 1) The impact of the European neo-capitalist offensive upon the fragile socio-economic structures of Portugal has brought about a split in the economic interests of the Portuguese bourgeoisie.
