The social democratic Spanish government, consisting of PSOE and Unidad Podemos (UP), has passed a draft law, known as "Trans Law", that will allow citizens aged over 14 to change their gender without evidence.


Under the proposals, citizens will be able to change their name and gender without the need for proof or witnesses. The administrative procedure will also do away with health reports and the need for medical and legal guardianship.

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.

Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE): "Trump demands, Sánchez obeys"

Trump demands, Sánchez obeys, the peoples pay. 

Yesterday in NATO's summit Pedro Sánchez committed to what two days ago he completely refused: to increase Spain's military spend up to 2% of the budget. 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.

PCPE: Don't be fooled by PSOE government's "good will" gestures on refugees

The Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) salutes the offer made by the Government to accept in the port of Valencia the ship “Aquarius”, which has more than 600 people on board, among them more than one hundred children and pregnant women as well, and has evidenced once again the reactionary nature of the European Union, unable to give a humanitarian response to the denial of the governments of Italy and Malta to allow the arrival of such ship to their coasts.

Interview with Ástor García, Gen. Secretary of the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE)

Special interview with Ástor García, General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE)

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. Do you think that the big capital wants new anti-worker, anti-people reforms that a PSOE government under P. Sanchez premiership could implement easier than the previous government? If yes, could you briefly tell us what kind of reforms the new government is planning to implement?

Spain: "No trust" to Sánchez government, intensification of the people's struggle says the PCPE

"Not a minute of respite" towards the new government of Pedro Sánchez says the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE) in a statement regarding the political developments in the country. 

"The approval of the motion of censure to the Government of Mariano Rajoy opens a new political cycle. The new government will try to take definitive steps to reform the political system, following a parliamentary debate in which it has been found that it is the very nature of capitalism that generates political corruption" writes the PCPE statement and underlines: "The dispute between the parliamentary forces represents the interests of different sectors of the bourgeoisie, which has seen its class economic interests guaranteed with the commitment of Pedro Sánchez to govern with the budgets designed by the Popular Party."
