This stance was expressed by its chairperson, Constantino dos Santos, while speaking to the press ahead of the 33rd anniversary of creation of the association on 8 August.

The association's chairperson considered the current pension of the former combatants miserable and humiliating.

He spoke of the need for the Executive to meet with all the associations in order to reach a consensus and take measure that dignifies the group.

He said that the former combatants are not demanding a special status, but something that  enhance their dignity, in recognition of their contribution to the achievement of national independence.
