Partido Revolucionário do Proletariado -Brigadas Revolucionárias (in English: Revolutionary Party of the Proletariat – Revolutionary Brigades) was a political party in Portugal. The Revolutionary Brigades were founded in 1970 by Isabel do Carmo, Carlos Antunes and Pedro Goulart, and advocated armed struggle against the regime.[2] The first armed action was carried out in 1971. PRP-BR was constructed as a party later. In 1975 the PRP attempted to create a School of Proletarian Culture as an alternative to bourgeois education. The PRP supported the candidacy for the 1976 presidential elections of Otelo Saraiva de Carvalho.[3] After November 25, 1975, PRP and Revolutionary Brigades were formally separated. PRP-BR did not participate in elections after the advent of democracy in Portugal.
