Release by from the PCP Press Office

PCP's commitment to women's rights: Combating and preventing discrimination, inequalities and violence - Equality at work and in life

For the PCP, signalling the day for the end of violence against women is not the evocation of an event, but rather expressing its support for the struggle of women against labour exploitation, inequalities, discrimination and violence, anchored in a vast heritage of reflection and proposal , embodied in the European Parliament and in the Assembly of the Republic regarding the various expressions of violence against women at work, in the family and in society, aimed at the reinforcement of legislation, but also a path towards its eradication.

National Demonstration of CGTP-IN

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

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.

A greeting to each one of you and, through you, to all the young communists who are not here today, but who, every day in their schools, in their workplaces, in their associations, in their multiple activities, assume the condition of activists for the rights of youth, their interests and aspirations.

On the meeting of the Central Committee of the PCP on October 24, 2021

The country's situation and the problems it faces as a result of decades of right-wing policies and which the epidemic has worsened, demand a response and a solution that cannot be postponed. The essential question that is placed is to open perspectives for their overcoming.

This is where the energies and priorities of national policy must be focused. It is with this objective that the PCP has intervened.
