The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) strongly condemns the US bombing of Syria, today at dawn, denouncing its illegal character and totally contrary to international law. The direct US military aggression against this sovereign State, which follows six years of covert war, constitutes an intolerable escalation with consequences still difficult to foresee, given the high military tension that exists in this martyred country of the Middle East.

It is with revolt and repudiation that the World Peace Council denounces the persecution suffered by the vice-president of the Women's International Democratic Federation (WIDF) and former Colombian senator Gloria Inés Ramírez and the Argentine sociologist Atílio Borón, a committed critic of US imperialism .

The Presidency of the World Peace Council rejects the irresponsible threats of aggression of the United States against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) made by its State Secretary Rex Tillerson on Friday (17th of March), speaking from their ally's platform, in South Korea.

The US has for years promoted a policy of interference and destabilization in the Korean Peninsula, investing in the Korean people's division and in reiterated threats against the People's Korea, with repeated military drills, sanctions and arrogant statements.

Yes to Peace! No to NATO!
Protest NATO’s 2017 Brussels Summit!

Since its creation, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, has been an aggressive military arm of imperialism. It is the largest and most dangerous military organization in the World, deeply interconnected with the foreign and economic policies of both the United States and the European Union.
