Fascist Portugal – led first by António de Oliveira Salazar until 1968 and then by Marcelo Caetano – was welcomed into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in 1949, the United Nations in 1955, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in 1961 and signed a pact with the European Economic Community in 1972.

FBI Storms African Liberation Movement With Fabricated Charges

On July 29, 2022, the FBI carried out a violent pre-dawn raid at the homes of Uhuru Movement leaders, namely Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) , and other Uhuru Movement offices. The APSP is a political party that aims to lead the struggle of the African working class and oppressed masses against U.S. capitalist-colonialist domination and all the manifestations of oppression and exploitation that result from this relationship. These raids were followed by a bogus indictment that charged Chairman Yeshitela, Chairwoman Penny Hess of the African People’s Solidarity Committee , and Chair Jesse Nevel of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement with being agents of  Russia and acting on behalf of the Russian government.
