On the sanctions adopted by the European Union against Venezuela

The PCP strongly condemns the adoption by the European Union (EU) of sanctions against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

This decision, adopted yesterday by the EU Foreign Affairs Council, besides being an outrageous exercise of hypocrisy, represents above all an inadmissible act of pressure and political interference directed against the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people, contrary to the principles and provisions of the United Nations Charter and International Law.

On the imprisonment of political leaders and members of the regional government of Catalonia

On the imprisonment of political leaders and members of the regional government of Catalonia

In view of the seriousness of the repressive measures against political leaders and members of the regional government of Catalonia, the PCP considers such measures to be an unacceptable expression of anti-democratic intolerance which in no way helps solve Spain's complex national question, in fact complicating and exacerbating it.

The PCP expresses its concern about the instrumentalization of the Catalan question in order to, once again, suppress the just feelings of national identity and reinforce centralist authoritarian positions much to the taste of Spanish big business.

Release by from the PCP Press Office

On Catalonia and developments concerning the nationalities issue in Spain

The PCP stresses that the nationalities issue in Spain has to be viewed taking into account the complexity of Spain’s history and of its current reality.

This issue must be addressed – specifically in Catalonia – with respect for the will of Spain’s peoples, including of course the Catalan people.

The Spanish Government’s attitude – based on intolerance, authoritarianism, coercion and repression – is thoroughly reprehensible.

by the Press Office of Deputies of PCP to European Parliament, Estrasburgo

Concerning the European Parliament’s decision to award the Sakharov prize to the so-called “democratic opposition in Venezuela”

Concerning the European Parliament’s decision to award the Sakharov prize to the so-called “democratic opposition in Venezuela”, the PCP’s Members of the European Parliament consider that:

This award is one more entry in a long list of acts of interference against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and against the Venezuelan people. It is all the more serious insofar as it seeks to glorify persons who promoted crimes and brutal acts of violence, and terrorist actions that caused dozens of victims among the Venezuelan people.
