Carnation Generation

Second part of the McCanns/Amarals' Court Hearing events.

After the embarrassing PR man the McCanns hired in Portugal, time for a genuine representative of the Portuguese people and their opinion – certainly more than 90%, as the McCanns’ lawyer, Isabel Duarte, admitted.

Some of the freedom-of-expression supporters shied away from the cameras but not my new heroine, Maria Augusta.

She grabbed the bull by its horns and put the record straight.

Embodying the spirit of justice and the courage of our old navigators and warriors of the glorious past, she defended country, people, the institution of the Judiciary Police and Gonçalo Amaral.

She showed the world that, at least for her and others like, the Portuguese will not be gagged.
