Portugal, as some of you who are interested in Politics know, has hit rock bottom. After 48 years of Fascist Dictatorship and 36 years of Capitalist economical domain, the country has completely dried it's sources of income. How do Capitalists try to regain their money? austerity measures. For whom? the people. Every conquest of the Carnation Revolution is being slowly robbed from us. Education in this country is a dream, even though our constitution guarantees a free public school, open for everybody, but that is not happening. Our schools are in a terrible shape, we don't have any sort of new materials, at least any material that isn't older than us, the teachers have to work a lot of extra hours, not receiving any pay for them, and many other problems. In light of all this I decided to join the Juventude Comunista Portuguesa, JCP(Portuguese Communist Youth).
I've been a member of the JCP for almost 2 years now, and my political commitment has been growing week by week. In the past month I was arrested for painting a Mural close to my school, asking for more conditions, as we are an Artist School and we have to take classes in dumpsters (with 6 windows and a classboard), and worse than that is the fact that we don't have access to any school materials. I was released about 4 hours later, when the police realised I was doing nothing illegal.
Between the day i was arrested (13th of October) and today there has been already three demonstrations and a general strike, in which i participated as an organizer, and had to spend many hours, handing flyers, painting Murals and all sorts of things.
For this reason i wasn't able to post more Albums, more Albums that i have heard and that i want to share it with all of you. The future isn't bright and i will not stand still watching my future and the future of thousand of other youths being crumbled to the ground because of some peoples devotion to money instead of peace and love.
Red salutes to you all, and i ask you all. ACT! Don't let them take you what is yours! Don't conform yourself to this regime of money and greed!
