Cape Verdean PR receives counterparts from Angola and Portugal to celebrate the liberation of Tarrafal

The Cape Verdean President will welcome his counterparts from Angola and Portugal on May 1st in Tarrafal, on the island of Santiago, to celebrate 50 years since the release of political prisoners from the concentration camp that existed there, he announced in a statement on Saturday.


"The presidents of the Republic of Angola, João Lourenço, and of the Portuguese Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, will join President José Maria Neves, in Tarrafal, on May 1st", the document reads.

Angolan, Cape Verdean and Portuguese prisoners remained in the camp at the time of liberation, May 1, 1974, a few days after the fall of the Estado Novo dictatorship and the colonial regime, with April 25, in Portugal, the document points out.

The presence of the three heads of state is intended to be "a joint celebration to pay fair and vibrant tribute to all those who donated their lives and who suffered greatly for the firmness of their convictions and total dedication to the greater cause of freedom and dignity" of their people, adds the note.

The Cape Verdean presidency indicates that, in addition to the celebration scheduled for May 1st, "a substantial program is being drawn up, in conjunction with other sovereign bodies, the Tarrafal City Council and other partners".
