In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world, the US Administration, headed by Donald Trump, has just dealt yet another real blow against Venezuela and the Venezuelan people, by accusing its legitimate President, Nicolas Maduro, and other Venezuelan officials, of an alleged involvement in “drug trafficking”, without any proof to support this allegation, and by establishing a $ 15 million reward for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction.

NATO has announced the holding this year in Europe, including in Portugal, of one of the largest military exercises of the last 25 years, to be held in a phased manner and in several countries by this aggressive political-military bloc.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NATO has decided to maintain them, reducing the size and postponing some of the exercises.

In the month that marks the 70th anniversary of the launch of the Stockholm Appeal to abolish nuclear weapons, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation, together with other organisations, launches a new petition " For Portugal to join the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty - Defending peace is defending life", which invites everyone to sign and disseminate.

Read the text of the petition:

For Portugal to join the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty

Defending peace is defending life

«Mike Pompeo and Benjamin Netanyahu are not welcome to Portugal» was, more than the motto, the outcry that emerged from the public action carried out at the end of the afternoon, December 6, at Largo Camões, noble space of Lisbon, already well known for the initiatives in defence of peace that regularly take place there.

Mike Pompeo and Netanyahu are not welcome to Portugal!

December 6, 18h00, Largo Camões – Lisbon

It was announced that Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State was coming to Portugal. Afterwards the presence of the Israeli prime-minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, that will hold meetings with Pompeo and Portuguese authorities, was also confirmed.

Today, November 29, marks the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, established by the United Nations, in view of the adoption by its General Assembly of Resolution 181 of 1947, which called for the division of Palestine into two States, a Jewish and an Arab - respectively, with 55% and 44% of the territory - and the continuity of Jerusalem and Bethlehem under international control.

«Yes to peace! No to NATO! ”Is once again the motto that unites several Portuguese organizations that demand the defence of peace and the rights of peoples and demand compliance with the principles embodied in the United Nations Charter and the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic. They therefore contest the holding of the NATO summit in London (3-4 December) and reaffirm the demand for the dissolution of this aggressive military-political bloc, responsible for most of the world's military spending, for the dissemination of military bases and installations.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) promoted on 16 November at the premises of the Professional School Bento de Jesus Caraça, in Lisbon, a conference "New Chalenges for Peace in Latin America.

Presided by Ilda Figueiredo and Luís Carapinha, from CPPC, and the ambassadors of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Republic of Cuba, Lucas Rincón Romero and Mercedes Martínez.

Representatives of the Colombians for Peace (Portugal), the Chileans in Portugal and the PT Brazil Lisbon chapter also spoke.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) strongly rejects the consummation of the coup d'état in Bolivia against President Evo Morales, his government, the democratic constitutionality and the Bolivian people.

As the CPPC has previously pointed out, this is yet another step towards the execution of the destabilization agenda commanded from Washington against the peoples and countries that in Latin America and the Caribbean have been leading processes of affirmation of sovereignty, social progress and cooperation
