Battles Won, Lasting Dreams

Aquino de Bragança: The Man and His Times


 Aquino de Bragança: Battles Waged, Lasting Dreams, the English translation of Aquino de Bragança: batalhas ganhas, sonhos a continuar  includes "reminiscences about his work and times. Aquino was known for his links with the liberation movements across Africa -- from Morocco to Algeria, Mozambique, Angola, Cabo Verde, and Sao Tome. Figures like Nelson Mandela and Julius Nyerere were his comrades.

 When the MFA -- Movement of the Armed Force (Movimento das Forcas Armadas) -- overthrew the Caetano regime in Portugal on 25 April 1974, he was the person that the Mozambique liberation movement Frelimo turned to, sending him to Lisbon to evaluate the volatile situation.

After Mozambican independence, South African activist Ruth First and Aquino set about recruiting a group of committed radical scholars from Mozambique, South Africa, and Western Europe, and forming them into a research collective through the Centro de Estudos Africanos that focussed on current issues of social and political transformation. Ruth First was killed by the erstwhile apartheid South African regime, via a parcel bomb in 1982.

Aquino de Bragança was a trusted confidante of Samora Machel, and undertook numerous delicate diplomatic missions on behalf of the Frelimo government.
