The Party Organization

Speech by Jaime Toga, Member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee of the PCP, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The Party Organization

In the period since the last Congress, the Party's organization was, once again, put to the test. We resisted and fulfilled our role in a context marked by challenges, but also by new and more diverse attacks on workers, the people and the Country, some of whom were rooted in a profound anti-communism and in an attempt to annul the PCP that for many years they have wanted to destroy or at least, make it abandon its principles, becoming equal to the other parties, harmless to the dominant classes.

The intervention of the PCP in the new phase of the national political life

Speech by João Oliveira, Membro of the Political Commission of the Central Committee, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The intervention of the PCP in the new phase of the national political life

The past four years have confirmed that, in the 20th Congress, we characterized with rigor and accuracy the new phase of the national political life and the conditions of our intervention in this context.

We were right when, in the 20th Congress, we pinpointed the importance of having fought to politically and socially isolate the PSD / CDS Government, of having used our forces to remove them from the Government and interrupt their destructive action and the policy of aggravating exploitation and impoverishment.

On Party cadres

Speech by José Capucho, Member of the Political Committee and of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the PCP, Loures, XXI Congresso do PCP

On Party cadres

Since the XX Congress, our Party has been called to face new and complex challenges, responding to complex and unprecedented demands. We were called to respond to the violent political and ideological offensive resulting from the evolution of the national and international political situation, and worsened, in recent months, by the use that reactionary forces and big capital make of the epidemic outbreak to attack the PCP, rights and freedoms and the democratic regime itself.

Asserting a policy of sovereign development. The Economy’s Strategic Sectors

Speech by Rui Braga, Member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

Asserting a policy of sovereign development. The Economy’s Strategic Sectors

Comrades,

At the core of the project to break with the right-wing policy lies breaking with the interests and the domination of big monopoly capital over the country. As a central axis of the alternative, patriotic and left-wing policy which the PCP proposes, lies the ever more necessary goal of recovering public control of the national economy’s strategic sectors.
