The World Peace Council (WPC) condemns and rejects in the strongest way the recent decision of the US State Department to include once more Cuba in their unilateral list of states which sponsor terrorism. This cynical and hypocritical action of the US administration is aiming in the imposition of new coercive measures against a people and country which defends since 62 years its right to determine their future.

The deep political and social contradictions of the U.S. capitalist system, which were becoming increasingly visible to the people during the past few decades, and had come to the surface with the election of Donald Trump in 2016, found their most glaring manifestation in the open riot of Trump supporters and the takeover of the Congress Building on January 6th.

The World Peace Council denounces to the peace loving forces in the world the recent agreement to normalize diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the state of Israel, in exchange for the US recognizing "Moroccan sovereignty over the entire Western Sahara territory.” One more “deal” of Israel with an Arab country under the auspices of the USA, this time clearly marked as an agreement of “Occupation for Occupation” whereas it refers to two (2) states, Israel and Morocco which occupy the territories of two other states, the ones of Palestine and Western Sahara, respectively.

Upon the invitation of the National Elections Council of Venezuela (CNE), a World Peace Council (WPC) delegation visited the country and attended as international observer for the December 6, 2020 Parliamentary Elections.

Otro acto se está gestando en la larga farsa que es la llamada guerra de “baja intensidad”, que de bajo sólo tiene el método, de Estados Unidos contra Cuba. En esta guerra sucia, como se ve en tantas latitudes, los reaccionarios secuestran las demandas populares, instigando manifestaciones lideradas por una minoría que promueve la agenda golpista de las élites y del imperio. Tales intentos buscan destruir el socialismo en Cuba y deben ser condenados.

The World Peace Council (WPC) condemns the provocative recent visit of Turkish President Erdogan to Cyprus, which has been occupied by the Turkish army for 46 years.
This visit to the besieged city of Famagusta is provocative because it is in clear contrast to any UN effort to find a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

In her article published in Morning Star, Liz Payne, the Convener of the British Peace Assembly, looks back 70 years to when the World Peace Council came to Sheffield – against the best efforts of Attlee’s Labour Party.

*********

Seventy years ago, from November 13 to 19 1950, a huge international peace conference was to have taken place in Sheffield, with thousands of delegates attending from across the world.

To its eternal shame, the Labour government of the day did everything in its power to stop it.
