At least two pamphlets on Portugal were produced; Portugal: Our Struggle by Jacky Gray and Pat Jordan concludes with a list of useful articles and resources and an appeal for a solidarity movement (p15) whilst p16 has details of a national delegate conference boasting an impressive list of sponsors.
