Jose Dolores: “I’m sorry, friends, but the Portuguese are coming. They will be here at any moment. I am sorry it happens here. Here in your village but we can’t let the soldiers take us. Don’t you agree? Maybe most of you will be better off if you went away. Up to the Sierra. Better to hide the old ones. The women and the babies. But if there are any of you who are not old, not women, and are really man, someone who in life, at least once, have thought of killing his portuguese master, then now is the time to act. Portuguese CAN be killed. I will prove it to you! Can you use the rifles?”
