Buy trains, increase the offer of transport and rebuild the productive apparatus

The starting point today is the national railway sector, its strategic character and the need to make the necessary investments for its modernisation and expansion. But we are here to talk about many more things, in concrete, to use this example as an illustration of the much that needs to change in Portugal if we want to tread the path of development and progress.

Combative journey of Portuguese women

Combative journey of Portuguese women

To mark International Women's day, the Women's Democratic Movement held two demonstrations, in the cities of Porto and Lisbon, on March 7 and 13 respectively.

International Women's Day: Equality in work and life, Enforce women's rights

International Women's Day: Equality in work and life, Enforce women's rights

The PCP salutes the struggle of women on this March 8 for the resolution of their problems, fighting the "straitjacket" of resignation they want to impose on them, defending the raising of their living conditions and the enforcement of their rights.

We mark International Women's Day at a time defined by the worsening of women's living and working conditions, in which certain forces seek to impose “normal” setbacks in their social condition, disguised by the discourse of valuing their role in combating the epidemic.
