With a statement, the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE)-Catalan Communists, under the leadership of Secretary General Astor Garcia explains the reasons for not participating in the elections of December 21st in Catalonia and underlines that both the two sides of bourgeois nationalism express the same antipeople-antiworkers policy.

Catalonia independence: PCPE reflects on the intra-bourgeois struggle for dominance in Spain

In a brief video message issued on Saturday afternoon, Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont vowed to continue working to build “a free country”. “We must do so resisting repression and threats, without ever abandoning, at any time, civic and peaceful conduct,” he said, adding that his government did not have or want “the argument of force”. 

Madrid reacted to the Catalan parliament’s unilateral declaration of independence on Friday by firing the regional government and dismissing the head of the local police force.

In sight of these rapid developments, we publish a recent press release (23/10/2017) issued by the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) which reflects on the ongoing intra-bourgeois struggle in Spain and calls the working class to reject the repression by the Spanish state towards Catalonian workers and intensify the struggle for a homeland of labour based on fraternity.

Catalan referendum: Statement by the Communist Party of Greece (KKE)

On the occasion of the referendum in Catalonia, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement:

"The KKE condemns the barbaric state violence and repression exercised by the spanish government during yesterday's referendum in Catalonia. This policy sharpens nationalist and divisive viewpoints from both sides, while it feeds the intra-bourgeois- strange to workers-people's rights- antagonisms within Spain.

Catalonia Referendum: Statement by the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) / Comunicado del Secretariado Político del PCPE

Statement by the Political Secretariat of the PCPE.

Following today's events, the PCPE shows its concern for the increase of the repressive escalation in the Catalan conflict. Today the dictatorial nature of the State has been re-established, an element that we Communists have always denounced and for which we have especially warned in recent weeks.

Spain and the Catalan referendum: The working people must not place themselves under false flags

The developments of the last days in Spain consist part of a fierce intra-bourgeois clash about the possibility of Catalonia's secession from the country. 

The secessionist trends have been supported by a significant part of the region's bourgeois class, which utilizes the multi-ethnic character of the Spanish state, the existing peculiarities in language, customs and customs, in order to unite petty-bourgeois masses and working class people on the basis of the "right to self-determination" and "democracy". In fact, this strategy puts large numbers of working class people under a "false flag", by promoting the contradiction of  "self-determination" vs "dependence on Spain".
