25th April marks the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the Portuguese Revolution of 1974-75, which marked the most advanced attempt at socialist transformation in Europe since the Second World War. We publish here an audio and transcript of a speech by Jorge Martín, given in August 2013 at the world school of the International Marxist Tendency. Jorge deals with the events of the Portuguese revolution, its inner dynamics, and how it was derailed along bourgeois democratic lines.
