The Handala, which is part of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition fleet, docked on Wednesday July 3, shortly after 2pm at Lisbon's Parque das Nações Marina on a leg of its "For the children of Gaza" mission. Representatives from the four organisations (CPPC, MPPM, CGTP-IN and Projecto Ruído) that host the Handala in Portugal were on board to meet the crew.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) reaffirms its long-standing demand that the United States remove Cuba from its arbitrary and illegitimate list of so-called "state sponsors of terrorism". Cuba's inclusion in this infamous list has serious consequences for the country's economy, in practice reinforcing the criminal and illegal economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the US for more than 60 years, which represents the most serious obstacle to Cuba's full development.

Wer Waffen liefert will keinen Frieden, sonst würde er Diplomaten schicken!
Es ist 3 Sekunden vor KRIEG! Olaf Scholz hat nicht nur bereits sein leeres Versprechen aus seiner gestrigen
Regierungserklärung gebrochen, dass jeder hier ohne Angst leben kann, er selbst, zusammen mit den

An overwhelming majority of the Swedish people, 84 per cent, say no to foreign powers being allowed to place military and war materiel on Swedish military bases without Swedish oversight.

This is according to an opinion poll conducted by Novus on behalf of the Swedish Peace Council.

At the same time, the Swedish government has negotiated such an agreement with the United States, which the Swedish parliament will shortly consider.

The well-known and strong opposition to nuclear weapons in Sweden also emerges from the survey.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) values the decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) this Friday, May 24, to order the immediate interruption of Israel's military offensive – which began on May 7 – against the Palestinian city of Rafah.

The ICJ also decided that Israel should keep the Rafah crossing open for the unhindered provision at scale of urgently needed basic services and humanitarian assistance.

The World Peace Council (WPC) demands the immediate removal of Cuba from the “list of States sponsoring terrorism”. The infamous list created unilaterally and arbitrarily by the US administration, constitutes a blatant example of cynical and revengeful twist of facts, accusing Cuba of “harboring and sponsoring terrorism”, when the peoples of the world know too well that Cuba and its people are the victims of multiple acts of interference and subversive actions against the sovereign will of its people for more than 65 years.

On the day that marks 76 years since the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes and lands by Israeli militias and army in 1948 – at the time of the founding of the State of Israel –, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) denounces, condemns and demands an immediate end to the genocide perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip and reaffirms its solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people for the implementation of their inalienable and legitimate national rights.
