Regardless of a later assessment, the conclusions of the NATO summit held in Brussels on July 11 and 12 confirm what the CPPC and the more than 40 organisations that joined the campaign “Yes to Peace! No to NATO! “said soon after its objectives were known, namely that this summit was aimed at “strengthening the warmongering intervention capacity” of this aggressive political-military bloc. This is, in fact, the serious and dangerous path to which the Portuguese Government has unacceptably associated Portugal.

July 5, in a meeting with Mr. José Matos Correia, Vice-President of the Portuguese Parliament, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) handed more than 13,000 signatures collected for a petition demanding that the Portuguese authorities sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Considering the number of signatures, the petition will be debated in a plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic.

Marking the anniversary of the first use of the devastating nuclear weapons by the United States against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August 1945, the World Peace Council expresses its solidarity with the Japanese people who were victims of the catastrophe caused by a imperialist power that does not measure the consequences to achieve its objectives.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation condemns the terrorist attack against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, and against other Venezuelan leaders, that took place last Saturday, August 4, in Caracas.

This attack rises to a new and dangerous level the manoeuvres and campaigns by the reactionary right wing and by imperialism, that aim at destabilizing Venezuela and at overthrowing its legitimate government, lead by Nicolás Maduro.

On the 73rd. anniversary of the US nuclear bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, on August 6 and 9, 1945, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) reaffirms the need and urgency to put an end to this type of weapons of widespread destruction. General, simultaneous and controlled disarmament has for more than seven decades been the central aim of action of all those who, in Portugal and around the world, defend international peace and security.

El atentado con drones ocurrido este sábado en Caracas, que tenía como blanco el presidente de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, merece de todos los humanistas y demócratas la más vehemente manifestación de repudio.
El Centro Brasileño de Solidaridad con los Pueblos y Lucha por la Paz (Cebrapaz) desde hace tiempo advierte que los sectores de la derecha venezolana, financiados y dirigidos por el imperialismo estadounidense, ponen la paz de la nación hermana y de la propia región en peligro con sus métodos antidemocráticos y terroristas.

Last Saturday (4), the Venezuelan right-wing, in collusion with its imperialist masters, embarked on a new phase in its terrorist escalation to overthrow the Bolivarian Revolution. Sicarios at the behest of obscurantist forces, resorting to modern technologies, tried to take the life of the legitimate President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.

Alongside the democratic and peace-loving forces around the world, we reject this terrorist action inasmuch as we have fought energetically against the coup attempts that successively occur in Venezuela.

Este sábado (4), la derecha venezolana, mancomunada con sus patronos imperialistas, pasó a una nueva fase en su escalada terrorista para derrocar a la Revolución Bolivariana. Sicarios bajo el mando de fuerzas oscurantistas, recurriendo a tecnologías modernas, intentaron quitar la vida al presidente legítimo de Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.
Por Socorro Gomes*

Junto a las fuerzas democráticas y amantes de la paz en todo el mundo, rechazamos esta acción terrorista, tanto como hemos luchado enérgicamente contra los intentos golpistas que sucesivamente ocurren en Venezuela.
