The Cyprus Peace Council (CPC) denounces Israel’s murderous attack on the Palestinian people, resulting in more than fifty dead and hundreds of injured Palestinians who were demonstrating for their return to the Palestinian territories occupied by the State of Israel. All these atrocities in Gaza were being committed as the state of Israel was celebrating its 70th anniversary since its establishment and at the same time as celebrations were ongoing for the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, recognizing it as the capital of Israel.

We Cypriots, both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, and other peace-loving Cypriots, who have responded to the call issued by the Cyprus Peace Council and have gathered today on 16 April 2018 outside the US Embassy, declare the following:
With the election of Mr. Trump to the US presidency, the policy of the deep state and hawks is continuing, as we are once again on the brink of a generalized devastating war which has begun within the framework of a Cold War policy being pursued. This war, it appears, will not be confined to Syria alone.
The Cyprus Peace Council expresses its deep concern at the start of the work for the construction of the nuclear power plant in Akkuyu, Turkey. The nuclear power station in Akkuyu will be built with the cooperation of Russia and Turkey, and is located just a few kilometers north of Cyprus.
The Peace Committee of Turkey, the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace, and the Cyprus Peace Council successfully held their 8th trilateral meeting on 15-17th December 2017, in İzmir, Turkey under the auspices of the World Peace Council.

At the same time as the peoples throughout the world, and particularly in Europe, are demanding that they want Peace, in a climate of economic crisis and vicious austerity imposed by the governments of the European Union, thousands of children in the Middle East and Africa are dying in their attempts to reach a country that will offer them the bare minimum to survive and for a life with prospects, as well as many other children of their age. Imperialism’s machines are being reloaded to kill even more of these children. In this context.
No Pasaran to imperialist aggression and war!
