On the European Council conclusions

1. More than the deep fractures and contradictions that run through the European Union, the European Council meeting highlighted the very nature of an integration process that intrinsically generates inequalities, divergences and asymmetries, in which capitalist competition in the single market prevails over any prospect of solidarity between States, which in practice is confirmed to be non-existent.

Forest fires and the defence of the forest

Statement by João Frazão, Member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee of the PCP

Forest fires and the defence of the forest

We are once again in the critical period of forest fires. In the next two months, as the last few weeks have already signalled, we run the serious risk of seeing rural and forester owners losing parts of their farms, populations in distress seeing the fires approach, hundreds of fire-fighters and other civil protection operatives risking their life to fight fires and to protect people and property.

For a Public Administration at the service of the people and the country

If there is evidence that the Covid -19 epidemic outbreak brought to light it was the importance of public services and their workers.

Votode Condenação N.º 274/XIV/1.ª

«Against Israel's annexation of Palestinian territories - For the defence of the rights of the Palestinian people»

The Government of Israel has announced its intention to promote, as of July 1st., the annexation of about 30% of the territory of the West Bank, illegally occupied since 1967. Such a decision violates the United Nations Charter which, in its Article 2 establishes the principle of the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force. Furthermore, it defies the international consensus established on the resolution of the Palestinian issue.

Questions question by Sandra Pereira in European Parliament

«Response to the plan of the annexation of territories in Palestine»

The recently inaugurated Israeli government has in its programme a plan to annex 30% of the territory on the West Bank of the Jordan in Palestine, a plan inseparable from the "agreement of the century", orchestrated between the Zionist government and the Trump administration.

In the name of peace and truth - against fascism and war - 79 years ago, Nazi Germany launched the war against the USSR

Release by from the PCP Press Office

In the name of peace and truth - against fascism and war - 79 years ago, Nazi Germany launched the war against the USSR

79 years ago, in the early hours of June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany was attacking, without a declaration of war, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). The main Front of the Second World War was thus opened, one in which the fate of the bloodiest war in history and the defeat of fascist Germany would be decided, sealed four years later, with the fall of Berlin and the raising of the Soviet flag on the ruins of the Reichstag, in early May 1945.

Not a single right less. Confidence and struggle for a better life

Speech by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary, Public Session «Not a single right less. Confidence and struggle for a better life »

Not a single right less. Confidence and struggle for a better life

The PCP has launched a campaign to valorise work and workers - «No to exploitation» - with dozens of initiatives in all regions of the country, as we are doing here in Portel.

We are where we have always been, with the workers and the people, listening to their problems, denouncing violations of their rights, making proposals to respond to their claims and aspirations.

There were some who thought they could and tried to silence us or reduce our activity.

The PCP, organisation, unity and struggle of the workers

Speech by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary, Debate «The PCP, organisation, unity and struggle of the workers»

The PCP, organisation, unity and struggle of the workers

No other theme deserved to open the cycle of debates in the context of the celebrations of the Centennial of our Party with more symbolic meaning and at the same time more central, vital and urgent in these times, than the one that brought us here: “The PCP, organisation, unity and struggle of the workers”.

A theme for a debate that meets the first feature of PCP's identity - its class nature, as a Party of the working class and of all workers and to which it has remained faithful in defining its guideline and its action and practical intervention in these hundred years of its existence.
