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.

November 3rd has passed and slightly more than a third of the eligible electorate chose the Democrat, slightly less than a third the Republican, and the remaining third chose none of the above by either not voting or casting a ballot for a third-party alternative.

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.

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.
Following the news that the Kingdom of Morocco initiated, in the early hours of the morning of this Friday, November 13, a military aggression against Western Sahara, carrying out an incursion into Saharawi territory in the area of Guerguerat, after, in the last days information on Moroccan military activities with troop parking and armaments near the border.
In the face of this aggression, in flagrant violation of the ceasefire agreement in force since 1991, under the auspices of the UN, the Polisario front forces evacuated civilians from the area and responded to the attack.
The World Peace Council follows with deep concern the situation in Western Sahara and vehemently rejects Morocco's violation of the cease-fire agreement this Friday, November 13. We denounce Morocco's decision to send in armed forces, breaching the buffer zone agreed upon under the 1991 cease-fire arrangement, against the Saharawi civilians that have been demonstrating in the Guergarat region.
