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.

The Actuality of the Marxist-Leninist ideology

Speech by Albano Nunes, Membro da Comissão Central de Controlo, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The Actuality of the Marxist-Leninist ideology

Comrades,

The crisis of capitalism, the imperialist offensive, the European Union and the struggle of workers and peoples

Speech by Ângelo Alves, Member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee of the PCP, Loures, XXI Congresso do PCP

The crisis of capitalism, the imperialist offensive, the European Union and the struggle of workers and peoples

In recent years the international situation has seriously worsened. International tension has increased, injustices and inequalities have deepened, reactionary and even fascist forces have advanced, and militarism and war remain the greatest danger facing humanity.

This evolution has deep roots in the exploitative, oppressive, aggressive and predatory nature of capitalism, and arises from the incessant deepening of its insoluble contradictions that converge to deepen a structural crisis manifest on various levels – the social to economic, from the environmental to political and cultural.

The struggle for the patriotic and left-wing alternative

Speech by Jorge Pires, Member of the Political Committee of the Central Committee of the PCP, Loures, XXI Congress of the PCP

The struggle for the patriotic and left-wing alternative

Comrades

As was mentioned in the draft of the Political Resolution of our Congress, “the reality with which our people and the country are confronted, highlights the struggle for the patriotic and left-wing political alternative - which includes a government capable of materialise it - as a core and decisive element to guarantee the necessary path, able to respond to the demands of development, progress and national sovereignty”.
