Escapar da Guerra (Escaping war), article by Miguel Cardina and Susana Martins
This article analyses the role of deserters and draft evaders amongst Portuguese troops during the colonial war. Taking advantage of the recent discussion of the subject in Portuguese society, it seeks to further historiographical knowledge on the topic, bringing new information and interpretations on disobedience toward military enlistment. With this in mind, the authors revisit the stance of the various Portuguese opposition sectors regarding desertion, both in the country and in exile; examine the different typologies associated with the refusal of war; and gather new data on the subject, particularly regarding the quantification of the phenomenon, supplemented with analytical notes contributing to its contextualization.

Manuel Tavares carries this suitcase on his shoulder, as did Portuguese peasants as they arrived in France in the 1960/1970s. ‘This suitcase is the object that better represents my personal pathway. Laden with memories and brimming with hopes, it carries the dreams of a path that must be trod in the search for liberty, equality and fraternity’.
