Today we commemorate the International Day of Peace, initiative launched by the United Nations in 1981.
For us in the World Peace Council, it was a great satisfaction and joy to see, this September 30, the historical moment in which Palestine's flag was raised at the UN headquarters. The occasion is filled with symbolism and asks for a reflection, since it translates, above all, the hope vested by the Palestinian people in this organization for 70 years.

The possible negative impact on the Czech Republic
The World Peace Council expresses on the occasion of the “International Day of Peace” of the United Nations its deep concern about the growing aggressiveness of imperialism in all corners of the world, but in particular these days about the growing waves of refugees fleeing for their lives from Syria, Iraq and North Africa, being victims of the imperialist wars and aggressions of all the last years.

The Peace Association of Turkey would like to inform the peace-loving forces and briefly share its views about the recent developments in Turkey.
Solid path for Peace, for the future
The WPC is underlining 54 years from the start of the dirty imperialist war of the USA against the Vietnamese people the need for comprehensive and overall compensation of the victims of the toxic ‘Agent Orange’, their relief and overall support. The US administrations all these years never acknowledged their heavy responsibility towards a people and a country which fought with dignity for its freedom and the right to determine alone its fortunes.
70 Years of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
On August 6 and 9 70 years will have passed on the nuclear bombing against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States of America. On this occasion the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) recalls the barbaric act committed against defenceless populations at a time when the Japanese empire was already military defeated on land in Asian front and on the Pacific air and sea fronts. Japan had already started the process of surrendering to the Allied Forces.
A dreadful anniversary and the call for strengthening our struggle against nuclear weapons
At this 70th anniversary of the criminal US bombings against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we write to you reinforcing our solidarity to the Japanese people, victim of this appalling inauguration of the use of nuclear weapons in our world. We pay our respects to thousands of victims of this war crime and crime against humanity perpetrated by the US imperialism, still to be held accountable.
The World Peace Council condemns and denounces vehemently the barbaric killing of an palestinian infant and the heavy injury of three more family members in the village of Douma,near the Palestinian city of Nablus. This murderous action by Israeli settlers to put on fire a family home shows once more the serious situation caused by the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories and takes place in the framework of the escalation of the policy of the Israeli occupation regime which is feeding such horrible actions.
