Top Values in Tawny Port: The Bottles to Buy Now

Get to know your Port!
Portugal has been producing and exporting its celebrated wine for centuries, but there are still many little secrets to keep in mind.
https://www.wsj.com/articles/tawny-port-best-value-bottles-11645729802

When a recent study revealed that not all tawny Ports are as old as their labels profess, our wine columnist wondered: How much does age really matter? She found five outstanding bottles for close to half the price she might typically pay.

Press Statement
International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today we commemorate 77 years from the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, a symbol of Nazi horror and inhumanity.

Portugal joins all those who are determined not to forget the atrocities that were then perpetrated. As we celebrate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we reiterate that tolerance, discrimination, xenophobia, racism, antisemitism and anti-gypsyism are contrary to the respect for human dignity and for all other fundamental values inscribed in our Constitution.

Commemorating this date means to perpetuating memory so that the practices of Nazi barbarism - an ideology and a regime which dehumanized and excluded part of Humanity, which legitimized and institutionalized cruelty, torture and death - never happen again.

We evoke, without exception, all of Nazism's victims: Jews, gypsies, LGBTI persons, political opponents, intellectuals, persons with incurable diseases or with disabilities.

We also remember acts of resistance, heroism and solidarity, including those of Portuguese who, through their courage and altruism, saved thousands of victims of Nazi persecution from deportation and death. We remember Aristides de Sousa Mendes, Carlos Sampaio Garrido, Alberto Lis-Teixeira Branquinho, José Brito Mendes e Joaquim Carreira, whose memory is now celebrated through a recently inaugurated space at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In 2019, Portugal became an effective member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), reinforcing our commitment towards promoting the education of younger generations about this dark period.

A year later, in 2020, Portugal launched "Nunca Esquecer" ("Never Forget"). This program stimulated a wide range of activities: it organized exhibitions, seminars and conferences; it fostered educational materials and resources; it advanced training and capacity-building actions; it created a Municipal Prize; it digitalized archives and testimonies; and it supported the production of knowledge through, for example, the publications by Imprensa Nacional-Casa da Moeda for three books about Portuguese victims and saviors.

We live at a time when signs of antisemitism as well as of Holocaust distortion and denial are on the rise. It is therefore imperative to reiterate our commitment to keeping the memory alive, because to remember and to never forget helps us guaranteeing - today and always - human rights of all and for all.

🇵🇹 Votação no estrangeiro para a eleição da Assembleia da República

Já foi iniciado o processo de expedição para o estrangeiro dos boletins de voto para a eleição da Assembleia da República, que decorrerá a 30 de janeiro de 2022.
Sublinha-se que os eleitores no estrangeiro votarão por via postal, a não ser que tenham exercido, até ao passado dia 5 de dezembro, o direito de opção pelo voto presencial.
O voto por via postal deve ser remetido pelo eleitor com a maior brevidade possível e até ao dia 29 de janeiro. Somente serão considerados os votos enviados até essa data e recebidos em Portugal até ao dia 9 de fevereiro.
O eleitor no estrangeiro que vota por via postal receberá o boletim de voto através de carta remetida pela Administração Eleitoral da Secretaria Geral do Ministério da Administração Interna para a sua morada de recenseamento, e deve adotar o seguinte procedimento:
Assinala com uma cruz a sua opção no boletim de voto e dobra-o em quatro. Caso o eleitor se engane a assinalar a sua opção de voto no boletim, não há lugar a correção ou substituição. De seguida, coloca o boletim de voto no envelope verde, fechando-o.
Depois, insere o envelope verde dentro do envelope de resposta — um envelope branco já preenchido com a morada de destino — juntamente com uma cópia do Cartão do Cidadão ou do Bilhete de Identidade, nos termos da Lei Eleitoral da Assembleia da República (artigo 79º-G, n.º 6, da Lei n.º 14/79, de 16 de maio).
O envelope de resposta não necessita de selo, uma vez que tem porte pago em Portugal, conforme está sinalizado no próprio envelope pela primeira vez em três línguas: portuguesa, inglesa e francesa. O envelope de resposta contém, também, indicação para os correios locais relativamente à obrigação de assegurar o serviço de devolução de acordo com a Convenção Postal Universal.
