The National Syndicalists - full name: Portuguese: Movimento Nacional-Sindicalista; English: National Syndicalist Movement - or MNS was a political movement that briefly flourished in Portugal in the 1930s. Stanley G. Payne defines them as a fascist. Salazar announced the dissolution of the group on July 29, 1934, condemning the group for its cult of youth, emphasis on leadership and mass organisation as he did so.
Center, General Humberto Delgado presidential candidate from the opposition to the Salazar´s candidate at the 1958 elections. At his left, Francisco Rolão Preto. Despite his right-wing inclinations he never surrendered to Salazar´s regime offers.
Preto returned to Portugal in February 1935, and was detained after instigating a September rebellion with the crew of the Bartolomeu Dias and the garrison in the Lisbon-area Penha de França. Again exiled, he fought in the Spanish Civil War on Francisco Franco's side.
