Today marks one month since around 1500 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails started a hunger strike, protesting the denial by Israeli authorities to respect basic rights, enshrined in international law, like access to medical care, against the torture and other forms of violence they endure and for the right to receive family visits, amongst other demands.
On May 2 2017 peace loving people of many countries remembered the third anniversary of the fascist masacre in the Trade Union House Odessa. The Czech Peace Movement together with other Czech peace and anti-fascist organizations commemorated on Wenceslas Square in Prague dozens of victims of this fascist muredrous attack in Odessa. Representative of the Czech Peace Movement Milan Krajča, underlined the importance to rember crime i Odessa three years ago as well as the role imperialism played in Ukraine openly supporting fascist and reactionary forces.
It is with revolt and concern that we follow the news of the arbitrary political process instituted by the Kingdom of Morocco against more than twenty Sahrawi activists, a process that has been dragged for seven years by authorities of a regime of military occupation.
According to international observers, the trials of 25 Sahrawis who have dared to participate in a peaceful protest in Gdeim Izik in 2010, in resistance against the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara, are biased and unjust, destined to play a role in a farce in which the Moroccan regime is supposedly democratic.

“We strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle”
The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation and other Portuguese organizations are developing a number of initiatives denouncing NATO's and its Brussels summit, throughout Portugal, that will culminate in street initiatives in Lisbon and Oporto on the 24th and 25th of May respectively.
The hunger strike of the Palestinian political prisoners approaches its first month and should continue mobilizing international support and action. The struggle of the Palestinians incarcerated by Israel – today, over 6,300 men, women and children – is urgent and essential in the Palestinian cause for the end of the Israeli occupation and for national liberation, and all those advocates of justice and peace must join it.

É com extrema preocupação que acompanhamos as notícias de que o Brasil, o Peru e a Colômbia incluirão tropas dos Estados Unidos num exercício militar conjunto na tríplice fronteira amazônica, em novembro deste ano. É sintomático que o convite para a participação estadunidense tenha partido do Brasil, segundo a mídia nacional, onde a população vive o pós-golpe de Estado sob a ameaça das políticas reacionárias e servis ao império promovidas por um governo ilegítimo.
Con gran preocupación, seguimos las noticias según las cuales Brasil, Perú y Colombia incluirán tropas estadounidenses en un ejercicio militar conjunto en la región fronteriza amazónica, en noviembre. Es sintomático que esta invitación a la participación de Estados Unidos fuera hecha por Brasil, según los medios de comunicación nacionales, donde la población vive en post-golpe de estado, bajo políticas reaccionarias subordinadas al imperio y promovidas por un gobierno ilegítimo.
