Carlos Rocha, member of the Central Committee of the liberation movement MPLA (Movimento Popular de Libertaçâo de Angola), talks about the liberation struggle in Angola. The interview took place against the backdrop of the Carnation Revolution in Portugal (April 25, 1974), for which the colonial wars that country waged in Angola, among others, were the immediate cause.


Issues discussed include the possible solution of the colonial problem by the new rulers in Portugal; the situation in the already liberated areas in Angola; the relationship between the MPLA and the other Angolan liberation movements, including the FNLA (for a time called UPA); the relationship with the independence movements Frelimo in Mozambique and PAIGC in Guinea-Bissau; the similarity with the (anti-imperialist) struggles in Indo-China. Angola gained its official independence on Nov. 11, 1975. The interview was conducted in French. However, the transcript is available in Dutch translation at Sound and Vision.
