"Fuck It All"

And several regimes applicable, no?

Oh yes. With current one 'under review'.
Liquica is where the Portuguese authorities were imprisoned by the Japanese. The site of the 1999 Church Massacre is about 250 metres away. The building pictured is an old Chefe de Posto residence, the local district adminsitrator in Portuguese times. It may be the last remaining reference to Salazar in the entire built landscape of TL.
