The Prime Minister has just announced in a public appearance the call of General Elections for next April 28.

On the occasion of the official visit of the Prime Minister of the Spanish Government to Mexico, the Communist Party of Mexico and the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, united by a fraternal relationship based on the principles of proletarian internationalism, made this public statement.
1. Imperialism has entered a particularly dangerous stage, in which all contradictions increase and the risk of a worldwide confrontation between the different imperialist powers and blocs, in full dispute for a new division of the world, increases. The visit of the Spanish PM to Mexico and the signing of several joint statements between both governments are fully framed in this global dispute, in which both governments defend the interests of the bourgeoisie.

Once again the words of PSOE about NATO are in question, as they prove that the working class cannot place any trust in one social-democracy that has proved so many times to be one enemy for the people.

IDC: According to your party's statement the dispute in the Parliament, between the People's Party (PP) and PSOE, consists the result of a competition between differents parts of the capital.

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.
