End to the encroachment and aggression
For the respect of Syria's sovereignty and independence
For more than five years Syria and its people have faced a cruel aggression, resulting from foreign encroachment and the terror action of mercenary groups, financed, trained and armed by the US, France, the UK, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar among other countries. A war of aggression that caused hundreds of thousands of dead and wounded, millions of displaced and refugees, the destruction of a country, with all that means for the life of workers and the people in general.
Considering what a nuclear war would represent, global nuclear disarmament is a central issue in the defense of peace, for the survival of the human species and the maintenance of life on Earth as we know it today.

Seldom before, as the time we live in, it has been so important to celebrate the International Day of Peace - proclaimed in 1981 by the United Nations - given the multiple and serious threats to peace which the people, which Humanity is currently facing.
