Carnation Revolution, Portugal (1974)

Taken on 1974-04-25

The Carnation Revolution, also referred to as the 25 April, was a military coup in Lisbon (Portugal), on 25 April 1974 which overthrew the regime of the "Estado Novo". The "Estado Novo" (New State), greatly inspired by conservative and authoritarian ideologies, was developed by António de Oliveira Salazar, ruler of Portugal from 1932 to 1968, when he fell ill and was replaced by Marcelo Caetano. The revolution started as a military coup organized by the "Movimento das Forças Armadas" (Armed Forces Movement, MFA), composed of military officers who opposed the regime. The movement was soon coupled with an unanticipated and popular campaign of civil resistance. The name "Carnation Revolution" comes from the fact that almost no shots were fired and when the population took to the streets to celebrate the end of the dictatorship and war in the colonies, carnations were put into the muzzles of rifles and on the uniforms of the army.

Thai Popular Uprising, Bangkok, Oct 1973

Taken on 1973-10-15

The popular uprising was a watershed event in Thailand's history. The uprising resulted in the end of the ruling military dictatorship of Anti-Communist Thanom Kittikachorn and altered the Thai political system. Notably, it highlighted the growing influence of Thai university students in politics. The uprising was driven by the actions of university students, but the role of other forces should also be mentioned. These include intra-armed forces rivalry, especially between the army and the navy, and a series of wildcat strikes by common labourers and civilian workers in August and September 1973, both of which helped to create an atmosphere conducive to a change in the ruling government. While the uprising did not change the role of the monarch, it did emphasize his position as a final arbiter between opposing forces. On 14 October, King Bhumibol appointed the Thammasat chancellor Sanya Dharmasakti, as Prime Minister (see Thai Popular Uprising 1973 Wiki page for more info)
