Comments[edit]

Subject - I consider this article isn't from a NPOV.

Saying that Cabral's government had a "program of socialist repression" is a clearly biased and unsustained statement. Even more when in succession you say that João Bernardo Vieira's coup was "relatively bloodless". These are things that can be heavily disputed.

One can mention that the coup caused several deaths and political arrestments, of people that supported Luís Cabral. Also, it is well known by the international community that for the following 18 years, during which João Bernardo Vieira was in power, a dictatorship was established. So, this article is very controversial. The way it is written is clearly not from a NPOV. FBC 17:55, 12 May 2004 (UTC)

I am sorry, I am relying only on what limited resources about the guy I could find on the web.
If you feel this article is POV, why don't you fix it? I'm sure you know how to hit the EDIT button:-) David Cannon 22:52, 12 May 2004 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. I just read the article and found it not to be neutral. I didn't change it immediately, because I didn't know if people here had all agreed with it. Now that I know it was just info that other resources gave, I feel more at ease to change it. That's exactly what I'm going to do now. FBC 09:58, 14 May 2004 (UTC)
I am a strong supporter of Luís Cabral and I believe that the country would be in a much better position today if he had been able to stay in power. However, he had a well-established record of imprisoning and, in many cases summarily executing, hundreds of political prisoners in the early years after indepedence. If I had explained my use of the phrase "socialist repression" better, I don't think there would be any question about POV. I think that the quisling João Bernardo Vieira's accusations of mass graves are false; however, the rest of the above is generally accepted to be factual. --TwinsFan48 — statement partially renounced by successor user Sesel on 5 March 2005.

Sorry to reopen this dispute, but the "Controversy" section is still NPOV, especially around the planned economy and the economic ruin claim. There is no evidence presented. As for the food shortages, there would need to be evidence it was his, or his government's, fault. None is presented here. Bruxism (talk) 02:10, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

The "Controversies" section's statements and claims are backed by proper and abundant references.Jomifica (talk) 13:38, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
