The Communist Party of the United States was considered within the political mainstream during the 1930s and 1940s, but the advent of the Cold War got it declared illegal for a time and led to McCarthyism, a vigorous anti-Communist political repression movement in America during the 1950s which effectively destroyed the American Communist Party's influence.
Members of communist parties were persecuted in many countries in the early Cold War period, when anticommunist sentiment was fueled by Western governments as part of their Cold War strategy.

The 1982 Congress confirmed the "revisionist" agenda, declaring the PCB "a party of the masses, linking socialist goals to true democracy, which will be constructed based on the values of freedom".

The PT was a unique political party, formed out of the radical movements born of the struggle against the dictatorship.
Carvalho became vice president of a party whose aim was the creation of a principled and forceful instrument of social justice against one of the world's most corrupt and unjust ruling elites.
He died at a tragic moment in the party's history: activists are having to come to terms with Lula's accommodation with neo-liberal economics and the fact that their party is governing on the basis of systematic corruption.

 BookRags: Luiz Carlos Prestes Biography
Prestes and the Communists spoke in the name of the ANL without the authorization of its non-Communist leaders; and when the ANL was outlawed, Prestes led an attempted military insurrection in its name.
When the group who had run the party while he was in hiding tried to challenge Prestes's control, they were expelled in 1961 and established a rival pro-Chinese Communist party.
Prestes remained secretary general of the Communist party, although his control was apparently contested by elements opposed to what they conceived to be his inept leadership.

 Brazil - The Political Party System
The Brazilian Communist Party (Partido Comunista Brasileiro--PCB), led by Luis Carlos Prestes, operated freely from 1945 through 1947, but the STF (Federal Supreme Court) canceled its registry in early 1948.
In 1985 Congress passed legislation easing the requirements for organizing new parties; thus, the ANC (National Constituent Assembly) seated eleven parties in 1987, nineteen in 1991, and eighteen in 1995.
The party system suffered considerable fragmentation during the late 1980s and early 1990s, especially because of an exodus from the largest parties--PMDB and PFL (Liberal Front Party)--after 1988, similar to the factionalization in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Following the path of other communist parties around the world, the majority of the delegates decided to change the name, the symbol and the structure of the party creating a new one.
The PCB was the most enduring political party in Brazilian political history, even though it faced difficult periods throughout its existence.
She argues it was really the Brazilian communists with their characteristic self-confidence who, during a meeting in Moscow, had convinced the Comintern of the preeminence of the Brazilian revolution, thus giving a very distorted and inflated perspective of their own possibilities.

 Michael Lowy on Brazil's Labor Party -- Logos Spring 2003
The formation of the Labor party during the years 1979-81 was due to a confluence of diverse currents each of which brought its particular sensibility and contribution to the construction of the party.
It is also the victory of a mass party, of both the militants and sympathizers that poured into the streets, submerging the streets and the public places of major provincial capitals within Brazil with hundreds of thousands of people dancing, singing and waving red flags with the five-pointed star of the Labor party.
The Labor party acts as a coalition government where certain key posts have been given to representatives of the dominant élites, but the left wing of the Labor party is not absent.

He left the Party in 1967 deeply influenced by the Tricontinental Conference held in Havana in 1966, and the conference of the Organization for Latin American Solidarity, also held in Havana, in 1967, which brought together revolutionaries from all corners of the continent.
He maintained that the Party was unable to resist the fascist coup since, ideologically, the Party subordinated its policies, and the interests of the working class, to the policies and interests of the bourgeoisie.
On the contrary, the issue is often a question of the survival of the worker's party, and the survival of the most militant comrades within it.

Contradictions between the party, the movement, and the government are normal, given the conditions we find ourselves in,” argues Ubiratan de Souza, a member of the DS current [and an official of the RS Budget and Finance Department].
The Brazilian workers’ government might borrow from the experience of the RS Participatory Budget, but it would be separated from it by a crucial event: the Brazilian socialist revolution.
The next most important lesson is the form the Brazilian upsurge took: a CIO-type union upsurge drawing in all the struggles of the exploited and the oppressed and generalizing itself in the formation of a mass workers’ party.

Even though his party is a fairly recent offshoot of the Brazilian Communist Party, Gomes, is invariably mischaracterized in the liberal "mainstream" press as a "center-left" candidate.
The Brazilian right, whose candidate bowed out of the race amid corruption allegations, is badly fractured and has divided most of its support between Serra and Gomes.
Constantine Mendes, a senior fellow with the Hudson Institute has characterized Gomes as "the Communist candidate." In fact, Gomes was a member of the largest centrist party of Brazil until a few years ago and is a fairly recent convert to socialism.
