Poster made in the Netherlands, 1960’s. The text on the poster reads:”Support the family’s of the political prisioners of Portugal”. Made by a action group in the Netherlands who resisted the authotorian regime of President Salazar in Portugal.
Opposed to internationalism, communism, socialism and syndicalism, Salazar’s rule was conservative and nationalist in nature. Salazar distanced himself from fascism and nazism in the second world war. Unlike Mussolini or Hitler, Salazar avoided populist rhetoric. Salazar was generally opposed to the concept of political parties when, in 1930, he created the National Union. Salazar described and promoted the party as a “non-party”.
Unlike many other western country’s Portugal kept his colony’s Angola and Zimbabwe in Africa. In some western country’s as well as Eastern Bloc country’s action groups were formed to resist Salazar’s rule and help resistance movements in the colony’s of Portugal. Portugal was backed by the United States because the US was afraid of rising Soviet influence in Africa while colony’s were dismantled.
