Civil Desobidience

 25/4/74 Collective Civil Desobidience

Notice of civil disobedience 41 years ago, a radio statement in Portugal motivated civil disobedience action that triggered a change of political regime without bloodshed. The people came out into the street contrary to the instructions given, joining the revolutionary forces and preventing, by their peaceful participation that clashes had occurred between fighting forces. This manifestation of popular support for change, was born the symbol of red carnation.
