Declaration from Portuguese Centre founders

Declaration from Portuguese Centre founders

Declaration signed by Portuguese writers confirming their wish to establish the Portuguese Centre, 15 November 1974, Lisbon, ff. 2. Although the Portuguese Centre was only officially welcomed into PEN at the 33rd PEN International Congress in Jerusalem in 1974, records show that attempts had been made to establish a Centre as early as 1924 – the same year a military coup toppled the Portuguese First Republic. In this document the writers aknowledge having read PEN International’s Charter and sign on behalf of any Portuguese writers not present to pledge their support for the Centre’s creation in person.

Declaración de los fundadores del Centro Portugués

Declaración firmada por los escritores portugueses expresando su deseo de fundar el Centro Portugués, 15 noviembre 1974, Lisboa, ff. 2. Aunque el Centro Portugués fue oficialmente reconocido como parte de PEn en el 33o Congreso de PEN Internacional en Jerusalén, 1974, hay documentación que muestra que habían habido intentos de crear un Centro ya en 1924, el año en que un golpe militar derribó la primera república portuguesa. En este documento, los escritores confirman haber leído el Acta fundacional de PEN y firman en nombre de cualquier escritor portugués no presente en persona su aprobación para crear el Centro.
