Once again this year, dozens of Portuguese organizations have gathered around CPPC’s call to keep alive and to renew the “Yes to Peace! No to NATO!” campaign – born at the time of the important mobilizations in Portugal against the NATO Summit in Lisbon, in 2010.

The campaign actions have involved a multitude of people that distributed thousands of leaflets and other documents all around the country, spreading among the people the need to struggle for peace and disarmament, against militarism and war, consequently the need to fight against NATO and for its dissolution.

Just a few days ahead of the NATO Summit, the World Peace Council organised a conference in Brussels on 7th of July, 2018, in the framework of its "No to NATO - Yes to Peace" campaign. Prior to the conference, WPC delegates from different peace organisations attended a public event organised by its affiliate in Belgium, INTAL, on the 6th of July.

On the 7th, after the conference, WPC delegates took part in the anti-NATO rally in Brussels, carrying their banners and shouting their slogans.

The regional meeting of the WPC in Europe took place successfully in London, on 26 and 27 May, 2018. The meeting was hosted by the British Peace Assembly (BPA) more than 30 years after the last such occasion. The Meeting took place a significant venue, the Marx Memorial Library, 200 years from the birth of Karl Marx, whose works continue to inspire millions of peoples in the world.

The Committee Against War Milan (Comitato Contro la Guerra Milano) participated at the demonstration, held Saturday 19 May in Milan, in support of the struggle of the Palestinian people, against the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem, which occurred just before the day of the Catastrophe (Nakba, in Arabic); 70 years of oppression and suffering for the people expelled from their land.

With the Committee Against War Milan there were also the flags of countries historically Palestine’s friends and themselves attacked by US imperialism and by Zionism too.
