Today, 25th March 2022, the political vanguard of Brazil’s working class, the Brazilian Communist Party (Partido Comunista Brasileiro-PCB), marks its 100th anniversary.

“Created in 1922 by militant workers and intellectuals who organized the first strikes of the working class at the beginning of the 20th century against capitalist exploitation and the oppression of the bourgeois state, inspired by the victorious socialist revolution in Russia in 1917 and its achievements, the communists of the PCB built a new benchmark for the political struggle of the working class, establishing itself as an organization that sought to boost the class struggle under a revolutionary perspective towards socialism”, reads a declaration by the Party’s National Political Committee. 

“The PCB is part of the history of our people, of their struggles and social achievements and remains alive, firm and convinced in the face of the actions of the bourgeoisie against the working class, the scrapping and dismantling of public services and the imperialist attack on national sovereignty. Thirty years after the beginning of our Revolutionary Reconstruction (almost a third of our 100 years), having bravely resisted the attempts at liquidation by revisionists and reformists, the PCB today remains loyal to this century-old trajectory of the revolutionary struggle of the Brazilian proletariat – and , as such, legitimate heir to that legacy”, the declaration adds. 

As the PCB National Political Committee stresses out “there is only one way that can overcome all the injustices and contradictions that capitalist society produces” and that is the  “revolutionary struggle for the end of capitalist society and the construction of a society without exploited and exploiters, without inequalities in the conditions of existence, without exploitation of the workforce and without oppression of the rich over the poor. A society that values ​​all human potential and does not reduce us to objects. A socialist society!”.

On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, PCB has organized several events throughout Brazil. Check out the Party’s Facebook Page for more.
