Portugal Issued Stamp on 50 Years of Verdean Association Portugal Issued Stamp on 50 Years of Verdean Association

The year 2020 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Cape Verdean Association (ACV) – the well-known body representing the Cape Verdean community settled in Portugal, based in the city of Lisbon – more specifically that of the institution that is today considered its first historical denomination, Cape Verde House.

The association is the result of the merging of Cape Verde House and the Democratic Action Group of Cape Verde and Guinea (GADCG, initially called the Democratic Action Group of Cape Verde – GADC), which decided to change their name and identity to the Association of Cape Verdeans and Guineans (ACG) and, later, following the post-colonial breakdown of the principle and ideal of unity between Guinea and Cape Verde and the project of organic union between the independent and sovereign republics of Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau, to the current Cape Verdean Association.
