Luiz Pacheco was, possibly, one of the most provocative authors that had published during the Salazar Regime. In parallel to the context that Luiz Pacheco does of “Depoimento de uma Angolana” in “O Libertino Passeia por Braga, a Idolátrica o seu Esplendor”, firstly edited in 1970, by his seal, Contraponto”, we will go through the paragraphs that Maria Alice Veiga Pereira, the author of the text in appreciation, dedicated to the ill‑treatments of the slaves workers, to the “conventional lies imposed by an hateful social regime”, to the racism e all of its retinue of irrational attitudes, to the economical nonsense of the cotton plantation, amongst other experiences that this primary‑school teacher has lived for the 30 years that she co‑habited in that regime. Faces of a polyhedral Violence that will hardly be atoned; a stain not only in the history of Angola, but also in the human history.
