“Portugal is our father”. “Portugal saved the people of Timor-Leste and must do the same for Cabinda,” says Afonso Zao, Lieutenant-General of FLEC-FAC, speaking to PLATAFORMA.

“Our country has been under invasion for many years and the situation is not improving,” says this fighter from the Liberation Forces of the Enclave of Cabinda, stressing that Portugal has a particular responsibility in the whole process.
