Ignoring decades of the peoples’ struggle against weapons of mass destruction, the imperialist powers gathered in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and their major leader, the USA, do not even flinch before putting nuclear weapons in the center of their policy. There are currently almost 15,000 nuclear warheads spread around the world and the modest reduction of this arsenal does not mean less danger; our mobilization remains urgent.

Political report – Socorro Gomes, President of WPC
Dear Friends and Comrades in Peace,
As you are well aware, our world is at a critically dangerous juncture: the possibility of a military, potentially a nuclear, confrontation between NATO, led by the United States, and
Russia. The militaries of the two nuclear superpowers are once again facing each other, this time in Eastern Europe, especially in Ukraine, and in Syria. And tensions are increasing each passing day.
