Communist Party of the Workers of Spain: No trust in the Government of social democracy!

The Political Bureau of the Communist Party of the Workers of Spain (PCTE), after holding its 9th Plenary Session, issues the following statement:
The slowdown of the capitalist growth cycle which followed the last crisis is an unquestionable reality. In spite of the efforts made by the spokespeople of capitalist bodies and governments to state that the current situation of “deceleration” does not take a chance to become a crisis, the macroeconomic data known thus far increasingly express with more clearness that the capitalist growth is deeply weak and there are lots of factors that could accelerate the outbreak of a new crisis in the next years.
