ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Azores' struggle for independence from Portugal. General Altino Pinto de Matalhaes, military governor of the Azores, has made it clear that the people of the Azores do not desire Sovietization, even though they will continue their struggle for independence from Portugal. Altino Pinto de Matalhaes earlier served as commander of the Portuguese military in Angola. The Azores consist less than 2 per cent of the total population in Portugal. Still they believe they can resist the domination of the 98 per cent.
