It is with concern that the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) is following the path that the European Union (EU) has been treading in order to create conditions to criminalise solidarity with the Palestinian cause, while turning a blind eye on the illegalities and crimes of the Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) expresses its deep concern with the growing military tension in the Persian Gulf promoted by the United States of America, which brought back the threat of a new US war of aggression, this time against Iran, following the US President Donald Trump’s announcement, on May of last year, of withdrawing the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on production of nuclear energy by the Islamic Republic of Iran, signed in July of 2015, between the US, China, France, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, and Iran.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation promoted in Lisbon, on June 6, a vibrant and participated public initiative in solidarity with the peoples of Latin America. Held in Lisbon the initiative counted with the participation of Ilda Figueiredo, chairperson of CPPC, of the ambassadors of Cuba and Venezuela, of a member of the Workers Party from Brazil and a Colombian refugee, among other participants from different Portuguese organizations.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) supports the appeal given the Portuguese Embassy in Venezuela, on May 2nd, and subscribed by several Venezuelan non-governmental organizations, asking the Portuguese State to fulfill its obligation and intervene with the Novo Banco ('New Bank') so the bank will release the more than 1.5 billion euros of the Venezuela State illegally retained by this bank and complete the payment orders that, in general, are aimed at paying medication, health services, food and other essential goods the Venezuelan people so needs.
