New Year’s Message

I know from my own experience the difficulties that the vast majority of us face in contrast to economic groups that accumulate 25 million euros in profits per day. Injustice and inequality are a harsh reality. But it doesn't have to be, and it can't be like this. The Portuguese people spread across the world, those who live and work here, have the right to a better life. There are many people who are rightly disenchanted, outraged, and have lost faith. But the country has a future.

We present our commitment for the elections to the European Parliament with clarity and audacity and without illusions or half-truths

Here we present our commitment for the elections to the European Parliament. We do so with clarity and audacity and, as always, without illusions or half-truths. Here are the proposals that we present to the people and the workers, what are the ideas and objectives that serve them, particularly at a time when so many new challenges arise. This is the moment in which the importance of having more MPs in the European Parliament is greater, providing a distinctive and courageous voice, who do not evade difficulties, and stand up to the great powers and the lords of money.

There, as here, we say what we do and do what we say

Here we are accounting on the work carried out in the scope of the European Parliament by those elected on the CDU slates. Today we present the assessment of the work carried out, but our accountability is made every day, to the workers and the people. We said that the workers and the people could count on the CDU, five years later, we have fully fulfilled the commitments made. Those hearing us know, from their own experience, that our MPs were not closed in their offices in Brussels and Strasbourg.

This immense April, a powerful affirmation of the future

The Political Committee of the Central Committee of the PCP underlines the strong significance and dimension of the popular celebration of the 50th.anniversary of the Revolution, this immense 25th. of April that all over the country, and beyond its borders, filled squares, avenues and streets – with an unforgettable dimension in the heart of the cities of Lisbon and Porto – affirming April, its values and topicality.

Popular opening at the National Resistance and Freedom Museum

Today we are here to celebrate a remarkable date. 50 years ago today, the political prisoners who were here in this fort, which fascism turned into a prison, were released.

Rally «A Europe of Peace, Cooperation and Progress»

A warm greeting to everyone present here in this combative initiative, promoted in the framework of the Confederal Group of the European United Left / Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) – The Left in the European Parliament, to which the PCP’s MPs belong. I would like to particularly welcome the presence of comrades Bert de Belder, from the Workers’ Party of Belgium, Vera Polycarpou, from AKEL, Eduard Navarro, from the Communist Party of Spain and Cyril Benoit, from the French Communist Party.

We need more CDU MPs to defend Portugal in the European Union

Here we are presenting the slate of CDU candidates for the European Parliament. Twenty-nine candidates who, together with all of us, with all the activists, all the supporters, all the militants, all the forces that together with the PCP make up the CDU, the Ecologist Party “The Greens”, the Democratic Intervention Association, independents without party affiliation, all those who will join us in the CDU, will continue to span the country, affirm the CDU and valorise its work, its proposals and distinctive project.

It's been 6 months of genocide. The government must side with the Palestinian people and demand an immediate ceasefire and recognise the Palestinian State

Peace needs more than these gestures, but these gestures are fundamental. This is yet another action among the hundreds of actions that have been carried out in the country so far. We cannot fail to take into account that tomorrow marks six months of an ongoing massacre, of an ongoing genocide. Six months, it seems like 40 years, but it’s been six months of death, massacre, genocide that has to stop.
