Once again this year, dozens of Portuguese organizations have gathered around CPPC’s call to keep alive and to renew the “Yes to Peace! No to NATO!” campaign – born at the time of the important mobilizations in Portugal against the NATO Summit in Lisbon, in 2010.

The campaign actions have involved a multitude of people that distributed thousands of leaflets and other documents all around the country, spreading among the people the need to struggle for peace and disarmament, against militarism and war, consequently the need to fight against NATO and for its dissolution.

Just a few days ahead of the NATO Summit, the World Peace Council organised a conference in Brussels on 7th of July, 2018, in the framework of its "No to NATO - Yes to Peace" campaign. Prior to the conference, WPC delegates from different peace organisations attended a public event organised by its affiliate in Belgium, INTAL, on the 6th of July.

On the 7th, after the conference, WPC delegates took part in the anti-NATO rally in Brussels, carrying their banners and shouting their slogans.

On Wednesday July 11 2018 a demonstration against NATO took place on Wenceslas Square in the centre of Prague, Czech Republic. Protest was organised by the Czech Peace Movement in the framework of the international anti-imperialist campaign of the World Peace Council "YES TO PEACE! NO TO NATO!" and was orgaised the same day the NATO summit started in Brussels, Belgium.

Once again this year Portuguese organizations have gathered to denounce NATO warmongering goals and its summit to be held in Brussels.

The organizations have been promoting initiatives throughout the country, with the distribution of documents and the campaign will culminate in several street actions, in the following days - from July 7 to 12-, namely in the cities of Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Faro and Évora.

See bellow the text cosigned by the Portuguese organizations that is the basis for the campaign.

For peace and disarmament!

With hope, however cautious, the world receives the news about the agreement signed this June 12 between the Presidents Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, which puts Korea and the US closer to a diplomatic solution for the regional instability, to dissipate the constant threat of war and end the painful Korean national division. After almost seven decades of outrageous, offensive policy of the US and its allies against the People’s Korea, the peace forces must follow up on the dialogue’s development with renewed commitment.

É com esperança, ainda que cautelosa, que o mundo recebe a notícia do acordo assinado nesta terça-feira (12) entre os presidentes Kim Jong-un e Donald Trump, colocando a Coreia e os EUA mais próximos de uma solução diplomática para a instabilidade na região, para dissipar uma ameaça constante de guerra e encerrar a dolorosa divisão nacional coreana. Após quase sete décadas de ultrajante política ofensiva dos Estados Unidos e seus aliados contra a Coreia Popular, as forças da paz devem acompanhar com reforçado compromisso o avanço do diálogo.

We appeal to all organizations and activists in Europe that defend the cause of Peace, to promote actions against NATO and its summit in Brussels, for the dissolution of this political-military block and in favour of the struggle of each people within each NATO member state for withdrawal from this military organization.

We recognize that NATO has now existed for almost 70 years, and that during this entire period NATO has continued to increase its membership, in expanding its sphere of influence, its aggression and its demands on the people.
