Statement by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary of the PCP

National Demonstration of CGTP-IN

«It is a great demonstration in an important day of struggle for the valorization of work and workers, particularly the valorization of wages as a fundamental issue, as a national emergency, along with other rights that have been called into question and that workers, using that experience and that famous phrase that "the rights are defended by exercising themselves", here they are exercising that right to proclaim the national demand for the valorization of wages, regulation of hours, the valorization of collective bargaining agreements. I believe there are reasons to be excited to see this immense force coming down this avenue.»
