" 25 de Abril de 1974 - the 25th of April 1974 "
Tomorrow, Portugal celebrates the 25th of April! It is the celebration of Freedom for the Portuguese people, after living since 1933 under an authoritarian dictatorship regime that ended in 1974, with a military coup called the "Revolução dos Cravos - Carnation Revolution ".
The Portuguese lived under constant opression during all this period without access to education & freedom of speech.
With the Revolution the colonial war also ended and the independence and freedom was recognized to the Portuguese former colonies such as: Portuguese Guinea, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Angola, São Tomé e Principe & East Timor.

Around Portugal, each council celebrates this day with diferent events.
A curious fact was that in a couple of hour/days the regime went down after a great organization of the military to which the people joined, there were two signs that were based on musics broadcasted in the radio:
Viva o 25 de Abril, Viva a Liberdade!
