«On the Centennial of the Communist International - Long Live Internationalist Solidarity!»

In the year of the Centennial of its foundation, it is worth remembering that during its existence between 1919 and 1943 the Communist International played an inspiring and leading role in the international communist movement and that, despite the difficulties of relationships that arose, contributed positively to the ideological and political maturity of the PCP and to its affirmation as the vanguard of the working class and the leading force of the anti-fascist struggle.

«April must be fulfilled in Women's lives»

Speech by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary, Almada, International Women's Day

«April must be fulfilled in Women's lives»

We wanted to commemorate the 8th of March in Almada, and so I want to salute all the women present, and through them all the women in the county. But we also want to dedicate a special salutation to the women working in for this municipality, for their struggle in defense of a 35-hour work week and the recovery of a full Christmas Subsidy (after six years of cuts), a struggle that continues, for better wages, job careers and a better life. A struggle that counts on and will count on PCP.

20 years after, freeing the Country from the submission to the Euro, affirming national sovereignty

Statement by Ângelo Alves, Member of the Political Commission of the Central Committee, Lisbon, Press Conference

20 years after, freeing the Country from the submission to the Euro, affirming national sovereignty

The Euro has completed 20 years of existence. The official proclamations of the European Union repeat mechanically, dogmatically and baselessly, the idea of 'success'. A serious and responsible review of the Euro contradicts this propaganda and agrees with all those who, like PCP, from the beginning, denounced its nature and objectives, and alerted towards the consequences of joining the Euro.

At the request of several media about the action that took place today [December 21], the PCP makes public:

Release by from the PCP Press Office

At the request of several media about the action that took place today [December 21], the PCP makes public:

The PCP considers that, regardless of the promoters, the concealment of the reactionary aims, the demagogically invoked issues, there is a huge contrast between an artificial media promotion in a seldom seen extent and the scarce participation that took place (only a few hundred people in the whole country). This reflects a clear distancing and rejection by the workers and the Portuguese people of this action and its obscure intentions.

Portugal and the European Union - Breaking dependencies, defending sovereignty, building another Europe

Speech by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary, Lisboa, Round Table «Portugal and the European Union - Breaking dependencies, defending sovereignty, building another Europe»

Portugal and the European Union - Breaking dependencies, defending sovereignty, building another Europe

I would like to thank all the guests who accepted our invitation to share with us valuable contributions to PCP’s reflection and proposal.
This reflection and the mobilisation of wills to open new avenues for Portugal and for Europe is all the more important when the general framework is that of a growing and almost absolute unsustainability of the situation brought about by the capitalist integration process of the European Union and the policies and ideological matrix that characterises it.
