“He made a valuable contribution to preparing the departure of the first legal Avante!, on May 17, 1974, namely by making his house available for meetings, in which he actively participated together with Álvaro Cunhal and some of the future editors”, say the communists.

Fernando Correia was a journalist and deputy editor-in-chief of Avante! between May 1974 and January 1986, the year in which he joined the editorial board of the magazine Vida Soviet, the statement also reads.
