On the coup against the President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff

The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, has just been removed from the functions to which she was elected by 54 million Brazilians. The decision of the Brazilian Senate culminates a process of a truly institutional coup. It is not about the removal from high office of a person who committed a crime that could justify it. On the contrary. This is a major operation by big Brazilian business to undermine the process of social change and sovereign affirmation, started with Lula da Silva’s Presidency in January 2003, and roll back the advances which were implemented, using the majority in State institutions and the economic problems brought about by capitalism’s crisis. A process that, at the same time, represents a revenge against Dilma for refusing to yield to blackmail and provide cover to the then President of the Chamber of Deputies, Eduardo Cunha and other elements charged in the "Lava Jato" case, and a political revenge for the defeat imposed on the candidate of the reaction in the presidential elections of October 2014.

Release by from the PCP Press Office

Hiroshima never again!

August 6, 1945 is a date that progressive forces and peace lovers from around the world signal, not to forget the memory of this monstrous crime that was the launching of the first atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima (and three days later on Nagasaki) and draw from this tragedy, which caused thousands of deaths and suffering that continues to this day, lessons for the struggle against militarism and against war and for nuclear disarmament.

Release by from the PCP Press Office

On the ECOFIN decision and blackmail of the European Union against Portugal

The decision of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council of the European Union (ECOFIN) to continue the "excessive deficit procedures" against Portugal constitutes an unacceptable attack on the rights and living conditions of the Portuguese people, an affront to national sovereignty, to democracy as enshrined in the Portuguese Constitution and the will of the Portuguese people.
