A research on the work conditions in São Tomé and Príncipe was
held by the English chocolate makers in the early twentieth century.
This was followed by a ban on Portuguese cocoa which caused a scandal in the national press that aggravated the already fragile relationship
between Portugal and Great Britain. The aim of this article is to understand how the periodical O Século covered the scandal and what type of
image the Portuguese formed of the English through the various articles
published in the newspaper. This study also includes a note on image
and propaganda, an analysis of the work conditions in the Portuguese
territories and an observation of the agents that led the boycott.
