US military intervention in Korea, which is still in place today, began exactly 70 years ago. The aim - as always masked in beautiful words - was the same that led them years later to attack Vietnam: that of seeking to stop the sweeping peoples’ liberation movement, which followed the Victory over Nazi-fascism in World War II.
The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC), following its stands in defence of the sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and international law, considers very serious the precedent set by a UK court to recognise Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela, claiming the need to comply with the decision already taken by the British government on this subject.
It was three years ago - July 7, 2017 - that the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty was approved by 122 states participating in the United Nations conference called to establish a binding instrument that will lead to the elimination of this type of weapons so dangerous for Humanity.
For this reason, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation, together with other organisations, has launched a new petition "For Portugal to join the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty - Defending peace is defending life", which is gathering subscriptions throughout the country.
The World Peace Council stresses the centrality of the Palestinian
issue for the Peace in the region and its firm position on the
Palestinian matter as the crucial issue in the Middle East conflict.

underline that peace in the Middle East will only be achieved by
resolving the Palestinian issue on the basis of UN resolutions ,
international law and the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
European organisations members of the World Peace Council, committed to their long-standing struggle for peace and friendship among peoples, concerned with imperialism’s aggressive action, particularly of US imperialism, and its repercussions on the current world situation, recall and stress the importance of defending principles of international law, essential to the pursuit of peace, and signalling important events related to them.
At the time when the current Israeli government has announced plans, on July 1, to carry out a new annexation of Palestinian territories in the West Bank, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) once again denounces and condemns these plans of annexation, recalling that the serious situation of the Palestinians is due to the illegal Zionist occupation of their territory and the international support of the United States of America, who support Israel militarily and economically and provide political and diplomatic coverage for its crimes.

Seventy-five years ago, an act of international criminality and infamy took place, the consequences of which have posed an existential threat to humanity ever since.

This August 6 and 9, humanity rememorates one of the greatest tragedies in History, which was even more nefarious because it was caused by human action, that of US imperialism. The inauguration of nuclear weapons by the United States against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, towards the end of World War II, concluded the most horrendous episode of the 20th century, foretelling the terror and the threat of total annihilation that would befall the world, imposing immediate and protracted, unmeasurable suffering to Japanese civilians.
