Statement by João Oliveira, Member of the Political Commission of the Central Committee

A global response to national problems and the State Budget proposal for 2022

The situation and dimension of the national problems require solutions to face them.

Other options and an alternative path are needed that contemplate the issues that mark the lives of the workers, the people and the country.

The debate on the State Budget must be part of this global response, which is as necessary as it is pressing. The Budget has its own value, but it is – it must be – an expression and translation of these options.

I - Results of the local elections

About the results of the elections for local authorities 2021

Statement by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary of the PCP, Lisboa

About the results of the elections for local authorities 2021

The CDU notes the results achieved in a particularly demanding context. A result that had to face, in its construction, a set of adverse factors, but which the mobilization and commitment of thousands of activists and candidates built up, affirming our work, honesty and competence as recognized reasons for support and trust.

A result which, despite its national expression, falls short of the goals that were defined.

The CDU, regardless of the losses registered, confirms itself as a great force in local government.

On the recent developments in Afghanistan

The recent developments in Afghanistan, including the entry of the Taliban in Kabul, regardless of their future evolution, constitute a clear and humiliating defeat for the US, NATO and all those who participated and colluded in their strategy of war and occupation, including successive Portuguese governments – war and occupation that the PCP opportunely denounced and condemned.

76 years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki - «The importance of the struggle for peace and disarmament»

Statement by Ângelo Alves, member of the Political Committee of the PCP

76 years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki - «The importance of the struggle for peace and disarmament»

There are milestones that, due to their importance in the march of Humanity, cannot remain forgotten, but rather must be signalled with respect for historical truth, calling to the present the teachings they hold.

Such is the case of August 6 and 9, 1945, the two days when the United States Air Force dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, committing one of the most heinous crimes in history and making the USA the only country that, to this day, has used a nuclear weapon.

End US blockade - Solidarity with Cuba

Denouncing and repudiating the actions of destabilisation and provocation that the US promotes, cynically instrumentalising the harmful consequences of the blockade for which they are responsible, the PCP highlights the example of courage and dignity of Cuba and of the Cuban people and calls for solidarity with the Cuban Revolution and the demand for an end to the US blockade against Cuba, as reiterated by the United Nations General Assembly last June.
