Pedra Badejo, Jan 21 (Inforpress) – Former President of the Republic Pedro Pires stated in Pedra Badejo, Santa Cruz, that Amílcar Cabral was the main factor in speeding up history and the history of liberation of Cabo Verde.
The president of the Amílcar Cabral Foundation (FAC), spoke to the press on Monday, at the end of the solemn session that marks the National Heroes Day, whose central act of celebrations this year took place in the municipality of Santa Cruz, in the countryside of Santiago.
“In fact, when we analyze the role and figure of Amílcar Cabral we come to a conclusion, it is an evidence, Cabral was the main factor in speeding up our history. First for the creation of the PAIGC, but also for the PAIGC’s triumphs and victories, which played an important role in the defeat in colonialism”, launched Pedro Pires.
“If were not for Cabral, colonialism would be defeated later, I don’t say it wasn’t, but it would be late. Hence his important role in speeding up our history and the history of our liberation”, he stressed, adding that it is in this perspective that Cabral should be understood as a leader and as a founder of Cabo Verdean nationality.
