This chapter examines the transformation of the Dhufar Liberation Front (DLF) to the Popular Front for the Liberation of the Occupied Arab Gulf (PFLOAG). The new political, military and social policies adopted by PFLOAG are examined. The beginnings of PFLOAG's initiation into an international community of revolution lying beyond the boundaries of the Arab world are discussed. Furthermore, portraits of revolutionaries from diverse backgrounds, including early volunteers in solidarity, are provided. It is argued that the 1968 transformation, carried about by highly politicised, young, and relatively well-educated former emigrant Dhufaris, heralded the process of building diverse political social and economic structures. As humble as they were, these were the first modern structures to arrive to Dhufar. They sowed the seeds for an embryonic revolutionary state in that territory and provided a direct anti-colonial challenge to the Anglo-Sultanic presence and its institutions.

Keywords:   women's movement in Oman, slave emancipation, revolutionary institutions, popular Front for the Liberation of the Occupied Arab Gulf
