Abstract:This essay examines the background and impact of the events on May 27, 1977, in Angola. On this day a demonstration against the ruling Movimento Popular de Libertação de Angola (MPLA) was violently beaten down, and followed by a period of massive political repression and imprisonment of political opponents. The author argues this day was as a defining moment in Angolan history. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract].
