«Celebrating 100 years, here we are and here we remain, ready and determined to continue the struggle at the service of the people and the country»

«We started all the acts of celebration of the Centenary of the Portuguese Communist Party, singing “The Internationale”, the Party anthem that is a stimulus to our struggle, by singing it in unison affirming our ideal, our dimension as an internationalist Party, which bears as its own the causes of the liberation and emancipation of the workers and peoples from all over the world. A way to express and also convey our sincere thanks to all the communist parties and other progressive forces around the world who sent us messages of their friendship and solidarity, saluting the 100 years of the PCP.»
