On the dangers of the escalation of war in the Middle East

The PCP alerts the workers and the Portuguese people to the dangerous situation that is being created in the Middle East by the most warmongering and swashbuckling sectors of imperialism, including the threat of a new war that, if not prevented, will have incalculable consequences that would go far beyond the scope of this region.

On the results for the elections to the European Parliament

1. The CDU’s result is not only particularly negative for the defense of the interests of the people and the country in the European parliament, as it does not correspond either to the environment of support that was expressed during the campaign, nor to the systematic recognition of the CDU’s work in the European Parliament and the decisive contribution that was made by the PCP [Portuguese Communist Party] and the PEV [Ecologist Party - the Greens] towards the advances in living standards that were achieved during the past three and a half years.
