  • Description

    Thousands of pro-Communist demonstrators rallied in Evora, southern Portugal, on Sunday (2? August) while a wave of anti-Communist violence spread across other parts of the country, and Prime Minister Vasco Goncalves struggled for political survival.

    The Evora demonstrators were addressed by Communist Party Chief, Alvaro Cunhal, who joined in the enthusiastic chanting of his supporters.

    The Communists are conducting a big propaganda campaign to keep General Goncalves in office. A military-civilian front including Communists and other allied groups is reported to have been formed to support the Prime Minister.

    Personnel at Lisbon's main military air base are reported to have placed themselves on alert, without specific orders. Lisbon Regional command said a number of units around the capital were in a "state of maximum vigilance".
