Polytechnic of Porto honors Mário Soares, major personality of portuguese democracy. We owe him the modern, free and democratic Portugal we have today. It is our duty to preserve it and permanently qualify it.
Higher education, knowledge and culture are roads of the path that April opened, against prejudice, ignorance, and obscure fear. Mário Soares, was a man of culture and struggle, a man of courage and firm convictions that we acknowledge and will not forget.
