"A Violência da FLA quase tomou conta da ilha"
"A Violência da FLA quase tomou conta da ilha" by Carlos Enes. . Published by the Historical Institute of Terceira Island.
As in the rest of the country, the spirit of the 25th of April began to penetrate Terceira island at the proper pace of a rural society subjugated by a small town close to the past. In due time, actors with the most diverse ideologies came on the scene, carrying projects that clashed in their essence. On an island steeped in conservative thinking, strongly influenced by the Church, the reaction was not delayed and took advantage of all the loopholes to contain the revolutionary momentum. The approach of this political and social upheaval focuses only on Terceira Island, in a chronological limit that covers the beginning of the revolution until the inauguration of the regional government, on September 8, 1976.
