Delegations from Bangladesh, DPR of Korea, India, Laos, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam attended this meeting, along with Pallab Sengupta, President and Iraklis Tsavdaridis, Executive Secretary of World Peace Council.

Seventy-eight years ago, an act of international criminality and infamy took place, the consequences of which have posed an existential threat to humanity ever since. For the first time, a species had created the capacity to not only bring about its own extinction, but also to threaten virtually all life on our planet.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) participated, between 21 and 23 July, at the Camp "Give Peace a Chance",
organized by the Platform for Peace and Disarmament - to which the CPPC belongs - held in Melides, Grândola.
The camp started on Friday afternoon, with hundreds of young people from all over the country arriving at the campsite, which was also the venue for the first night's entertainment.

On July 11 and 12, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation carried out several actions as part of the Campaign against the NATO Summit, which took place on those two days in Vilnius, Lithuania.

On the 11th and 12th, contact actions were carried out with the populations in the cities of Setúbal, Porto, Viseu and Coimbra with the newspaper "Peace Yes! NATO No!", which calls for Peace and denounces NATO's warmongering objectives. It can be consulted here:
