For peace! No to the instrumentalization of the Assembly of the Republic and the instigation of war

The PCP reaffirms its stand of upholding the principles of the United Nations Charter and

international law and condemning a whole path of interference, violence and confrontation, the 2014 coup d'état, promoted by the US in Ukraine, which established a xenophobic and warmongering power, the recent Russian military intervention in Ukraine and the heightening of the warmongering escalation by the US, NATO and the European Union.

Government evades raising wages and pensions and regulating prices to face the rising cost of living

Release by from the PCP Press Office

Government evades raising wages and pensions and regulating prices to face the rising cost of living

1. The measures now announced evade what is essential to combat speculation and rising prices and the inevitable increase in wages and pensions. And, above all, they ignore that the problems to which they say they want to respond are inseparable from the instigation of sanctions that are being imposed under the pretext of war, benefiting those who profit from them to the detriment of the interests of the workers and people.

Statement by João Ferreira, member of the Political Comission of the Central Committee, Press Conference

On the NATO summit and the Council of Europe meeting

The NATO summit and the meeting of the Council of Europe, whose decisions essentially coincided, raise well-founded concerns and are part of a logic of confrontation that, politically, militarily and economically, is marking the evolution of the situation in Europe and in the world.

Agricultural production and food sovereignty in Portugal

Statement by João Frazão, member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee

Agricultural production and food sovereignty in Portugal

Recent times have brought to light the serious mistakes of an agricultural policy subject to the impositions of the European Union, with the application of the Common Agricultural Policy, and to the interests of large national agribusiness and the main producing countries in the Centre and North of the EU.

An agricultural policy applied, in turn, by PS, PSD and CDS, which brought us to a situation of dependence that today takes on dramatic contours.

April is more future

Release by from the PCP Press Office

April is more future

For months, the country has been facing an escalation in the prices of fuel and other products. An escalation that, with sanctions under the pretext of war, now knows even more brutal increases for the benefit of those who take advantage of them.

In addition to the unjustifiable increases in fuel prices, a few days ago we were faced with further increases in electricity, gas and food products.

No more injustice and impoverishment. No to the rising cost of living

«The political framework and the intervention of the PCP. Background, current situation and prospects»

The ambition of the PS [Socialist Party] for an absolute majority, which led to the call for early elections, has been achieved. The manoeuvre set in motion to guarantee the interests and privileges of the ruling classes was accomplished with one of the possible solutions on which the centres of big capital and the promoters of right-wing policies were seeking What these interests gained, the country has lost in termos of the prospect of solving the problems confronting it. The policy needed to provide pressing answers for the lives of the workers and people is now more distant.
