The World Peace Council (WPC) expressed its strong condemnation of the Military Coup carried out in Myanmar in the beginning of February 2021 which brought the country back also formally to the rule of the military junta. We denounce the imposition of a one-year state of emergency and the detention of State and Political leaders. Furthermore we denounce the violent attack of police and military against peaceful protests in the capital of the country among others.
Even before three weeks have passed with the new US President Joe Biden in power, the first American bombings in Syria were carried out. In an unprovoked airstrike in eastern Syria last Friday, the United States dropped bombs that killed dozens of people. In fact, the murderous US strike was carried out under the pretext of de-escalating the situation in eastern Syria and Iraq and protecting US personnel and the coalition forces.
The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation condemns the US bombings carried out on February 25 on Syrian territory, which constitute yet another act of aggression against that country and a further violation of international law.
This military action decided by the new US administration blatantly affronts the United Nations Charter and International Law, demonstrating in practice what successive statements already allowed us to guess: in foreign policy, the Biden administration's goals do not differ from those who guided the performance of your predecessor's
Only thirty-six days after taking office, President Biden took his first illegal foreign-policy action by ordering an air strike on the sovereign nation of Syria, killing more than a dozen Syrian citizens.

US threat on our region is increasing
As soon as the Biden administration came to power, it started taking fast steps with regards to imperialist goals. Following successive statements, the first attempts came in a matter of days, in the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean, in which Turkey is also located.

These bombings consist a link in the long chain of conflicts and escalation of US, NATO and EU aggression against Iran, in the flammable region of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf, where huge economic interests collide in the framework of the generalized capitalist economic crisis.
El imperialismo estadounidense vuelve a intensificar su presión sobre el pueblo cubano, que ha defendido valientemente la independencia y el sistema socialista de su país durante décadas. Apenas unos días antes del final del mandato del presidente Donald Trump, su secretario de Estado, Mike Pompeo, anunció que incluía unilateralmente a Cuba en una lista de estados que apoyan el terrorismo. Este acto escandaloso y vergonzoso se encontró con razón con una oposición extremadamente fuerte tanto en el propio territorio de los Estados Unidos (EE.UU.) como en todo el mundo.
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.

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.
