The State of Israel has felt free to perpetrate the most heinous crimes against the Palestinian population, who survive and resist military occupation, apartheid and colonialism. The most recent episode of a daily violence, in a criminal regime, was the brutality of the repression of a protest in the Gaza Strip on Land Day, the 30th of March, near the line marked by Israel as a buffer zone.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) manifests its deep concern for the review of the US nuclear policy, made public by the Pentagon last February 2nd.

After a period of particular military tension in the region, both parts of Korea restarted a dialogue, long interrupted, and maintain open communication on matters of common interest. The Winter Olympic Games are only the most visible aspect.
The world peace movement, the progressive forces and defenders of social justice, sovereignty and solidarity have marked, a few days ago, the five years since the passing of Comandante Hugo Chávez, whose arrival in the Venezuelan Government has brought historical achievements to the people.
