PCP condemns a new step in the war of aggression against Syria

The PCP condemns the ongoing Turkish military aggression against Syria aimed at a direct occupation of part of its territory, which constitutes an open violation of International Law and a new and dangerous development in the aggression against that country.

It should be noted that the aggression against Syria was launched eight years ago by the US and other NATO members - including Turkey - in collusion with the Zionist regime of Israel and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, among others, and with the support of the Portuguese Government.

On the meeting between PCP and PS

The election results were translated in a parliamentary framework with a correlation of forces similar to the previous four-year period, despite changes in electoral expression between the political forces represented in Parliament.

The present institutional correlation of forces does correspond, however, to a distinct political context from that of 2015.

Solidarity with the struggle in Ecuador

The PCP addressed messages of solidarity to the Communist Party of Ecuador and the Citizen Revolution movement following the escalating repression and imposition of the State of Exception last week by the Ecuadorian government.

The legitimate protests of broad popular groups, in view of very serious economic and labour measures that severely affect the living conditions of workers and the people, have been met with the government’s harsh repression, including the arrest of hundreds of leaders and the arbitrary use of force.

On the general elections of October 6, 2019

1. The results know so far reflect a balance of forces that is similar to that of 2015, although with changes in the relative positions and electoral strength of the political forces with representation in the Assembly of the Republic [Parliament].

But this does not elude the fact that the current arrangement of forces on an institutional level corresponds to a political context that is different from that of 2015.

On the 80th. Anniversary of the Start of World War II - Fight for Peace and Disarmament!

On September 1, 1939 World War II was started, the deadliest war in history. Just two decades after the end of the World War I between great capitalist powers - vying for colonies, markets and raw materials - the world was once again plunged into a devastating war by fascist Germany and Italy and imperial militarist Japan, who sought to alter by force the imperialist sharing of the world.

On the Amazon fires

In the light of the great fires in the Amazon, the PCP expresses its solidarity with the peoples of the affected countries, in particular with the populations living in the Amazon rainforest.

The great fires in the Amazon are a striking example of how the capitalist mode of production only values and favours, both in nature and in society, the aim of profit.
