National Issues

On the European Council of December 10 and 11

Statement by Sandra Pereira, PCP’s MP in the European Parliament

On the European Council of December 10 and 11

As expected, the European Council approved the new Multiannual Financial Framework, as well as the “Recovery Fund”.

The difficulties and stalemates surrounding the approval of these financial instruments, and the way in which they were overcome, confirm contradictions and problems indissociable from the nature of the European Union, which are far from being resolved and which go beyond obvious divergences with Hungary and Poland.

The international relations of the PCP. PCP and the communist and international revolutionary movement

Speech by Pedro Guerreiro, member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The international relations of the PCP. PCP and the communist and international revolutionary movement

Comrades,

We are holding our 21th Congress under extraordinary circumstances which do not make it possible to have the presence of international guests, representatives of communist parties and other revolutionary and progressive forces, with which we have ties of friendship and struggle. This does not mean, however, that internationalist solidarity is not present and alive in our Congress.

Central Committee elected at the XXI Congress

Elected with 602 votes in favor (98,5%), 3 votes against and 6 abstensions.

The determining role of organization and intervention among workers and the claim struggle

Speech by Gonçalo Oliveira, member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The determining role of organization and intervention among workers and the claim struggle

Comrades

The PCP is the vanguard of the working class and of all workers.

A role that we do not see as a title, granted by decree or self-proclaimed indulgence.

Our vanguard role results from the class nature of the PCP, as well as from its supreme objectives that correspond to the historical mission of the proletariat: to abolish class society and to create, in its place, a superior form of social and economic organization, socialism, towards communism.
