Following the actions decided in the meeting of WPC European member organizations, held in London on 26 May, and the consultation to WPC European member organizations we now divulge the text "ABOLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS - HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI NEVER AGAIN", to mark the approaching 73rd anniversary of the US bombings against Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

ABOLISH NUCLEAR WEAPONS
HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI NEVER AGAIN!

The escalation in Nicaragua has drawn more attention from the popular and peace forces in Latin America and the Caribbean, and in the entire world. The signs of foreign interference, in particular from the US, are already clear in the domestic dispute which, from legitimate demands in the economic realm, has escalated to the violence today seen on the streets, despite the calls for dialogue from the government of President Daniel Ortega and the commitments he has made.

La escalada de la crisis en Nicaragua ha atraído redoblada atención de las fuerzas populares y de la paz en América Latina y el Caribe y en todo el mundo. Se han puesto de manifiesto los contornos de la injerencia externa, en particular, estadounidense, en la disputa política doméstica que, de reivindicaciones legítimas en el plano económico ha escalado a la violencia que hoy se verifica en las calles, a pesar de los llamamientos del gobierno del presidente Daniel Ortega por el diálogo y de los compromisos que hizo.

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.

On Wednesday July 11 2018 a demonstration against NATO took place on Wenceslas Square in the centre of Prague, Czech Republic. Protest was organised by the Czech Peace Movement in the framework of the international anti-imperialist campaign of the World Peace Council "YES TO PEACE! NO TO NATO!" and was orgaised the same day the NATO summit started in Brussels, Belgium.

Once again this year Portuguese organizations have gathered to denounce NATO warmongering goals and its summit to be held in Brussels.

The organizations have been promoting initiatives throughout the country, with the distribution of documents and the campaign will culminate in several street actions, in the following days - from July 7 to 12-, namely in the cities of Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Faro and Évora.

See bellow the text cosigned by the Portuguese organizations that is the basis for the campaign.

For peace and disarmament!
