Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain


Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain

factions.On December 13–15 of 1984 a "Communist Unity Congress" was held in Madrid. Partido Comunista de España Unificado (PCEU, "Unified Communist Party of Spain"), Movimiento de Recuperación del PCE (MRPCE, "Movement for the Recuperation of the PCE"), Movimiento para la Recuperación y Unificación del PCE (MRUPCE, "Movement for the Recuperation and Unification of the PCE"), Candidatura Comunista (CC, "Communist Candidature"), and some minor groups unified themselves, thus creating "Partido Comunista" (renamed PCPE in 1986). All these groups had surged from splits from the Communist Party of Spain (PCE) during the 1970s and 1980s. Quickly after its foundation, PCPE was recognized by some other parties, such as the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and other statebearing Eastern bloc parties. The party was formed by those who were against Santiago Carrillo's Eurocommunist line in the PCE. The Catalan referent of PCPE was initially Party of Communists of Catalonia (PCC), but it later broke with PCPE and now the catalan referent is the Communist Party of the Peoples of Catalonia.

PCPE briefly joined Izquierda Unida in 1987. In 2000, the Spanish Communist Workers' Party (PCOE) merged with PCPE, and the publication of the united party became "Unidad y Lucha".

PCPE publishes "Unidad y Lucha" and "Propuesta Comunista" (a theoretical journal). Before the PCOE-PCPE merger, the main publication of the party was "Nuevo Rumbo". Colectivos de Jovenes Comunistas (CJC, Collectives of Communist Youth) is the youth wing of PCPE in all Spain except Catalonia (CJC-JCPC), Asturias and Galicia (CJC-CMC) and Euskadi and Navarra (CJC-GK).

Federations of PCPE:

* Partido Comunista del Pueblo Andaluz - Communist Party of Andalucian People (PCPA)
* PCPE-Astúries - PCPE-Asturias
