The Brazilian Communist Party - PCB - and the Communist Party of Brazil - PCdoB - greet all the communist and workers' parties and movements participating in the 20th IMCWP and present the comrades and fellows the following joint appeal: 

 

Comrades, 

The new conjuncture in Brazil after the election of Jair Bolsonaro to the Presidency of the Republic brings concerns and requires that the revolutionary and leftist parties, social movements and progressive forces in general implement organized actions of resistance, solidarity and struggle against the threats of political setbacks, in various areas, intimidation and even aggression against militants and activists, which are characteristics of the fascist and reactionary elements that conform the political bloc supporting the new government. In the Congress, bills are being promoted to persecute the communist parties and ban the defense and dissemination of communism's ideals and symbols.  

It is necessary and urgent to form and consolidate a democratic and anti-fascist front, which was already kickstarted, in public demonstrations held throughout the campaign in the elections' second round, around the candidacy of Fernando Haddad. This front shall not only publicly denounce all and any type of aggression and bring the aggressors to justice, but also hold various actions to face the new political framework, on the streets and in the institutional field, promoting the solidarity between the forces that oppose the new government.  

This struggle requires, at this point in time, the solidarity and unity of action between the communist forces in Brazil and also the militant solidarity in the international realm. Therefore, the Brazilian Communist Party - PCB - and the Communist Party of Brazil - PCdoB - will act jointly and in solidarity in this struggle and ask that all the communist and workers' party participating in this 20th International Meeting be vigilant and mobilized for the militant support that the conjuncture demands.
