Workers' Cause Party
Workers' Cause Party (Portuguese: Partido da Causa Operária, PCO) is a political party in Brazil. Its origins can be traced back to 1978. On that year, several Trotskyist militants who were not satisfied with the socialist international[clarification needed] united under the name Tendência Trotskista do Brasil (Brazilian Trotskyist Tendency, TTB). However, it was only established in 1995.
In 1980, this organization united itself with the newly formed Worker's Party (PT), becoming very involved in that decade's municipal and state elections, with several mayors and state representatives elected.
Currently, the PCO maintains the same Trotskyist policies of its foundation.
The youth wing of the party is the Revolutionary Youth Alliance (AJR).
