LIVRE[8] (lit. 'FREE'), previously known as LIVRE/Tempo de Avançar[9] (lit. 'FREE/Time to Move Forward', L/TDA), is an eco-socialist political party in Portugal founded in 2014.

Its founding principles are ecology, universalism, freedom, equity, solidarity, socialism and Europeanism.[10] Its symbol is the poppy.

It was legalised by the Portuguese Constitutional Court on 20 March 2014.[11] On 20 May 2015, it officially changed its name LIVRE to LIVRE/Tempo de Avançar, with L/TDA as its abbreviation.[12] It switched back to its original name a few years later.
