Once again this March, the Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals, the Club of Generals and Admirals of Serbia and other independent non-party associations in Serbia pay tribute to the victims of NATO 1999 aggression on Serbia (FRY). This aggression took lives of more than thousand defenders, military and the police and their officers, and also of thousands of civilians, including 87 children. Regrettably, the final list of the civilian casualties has not been determined as yet, although the number is estimated to stand at over 3,000. About 10.000 people were wounded.

The President of the National Leadership of the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC), Ilda Figueiredo, represented CPPC in a conference held in Brussels on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, promoted by the Confederal Group of the European United Left - Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL).
