The Conference on U.S. Foreign Military Bases was held successfully on January 12-14, at Learning Commons Town Hall, University of Baltimore, USA. Attached are the resolutions of the conference.
The Israeli occupation of Palestine is ever more isolated, politically and diplomatically. It is clear that the US imperialism is nothing else but an ally of the racist, colonialist and criminal occupying power, which is Israel. It is up to the international movement of solidarity with the Palestinian people to strengthen the struggle for its liberation, driving the US away, once and for all, from the role of mediator. This is also the position defended by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), in a statement released this Monday (15th of January).

RESOLUCIÓN DE CONDENA EMITIDA POR LA UNIÓN DOMINICANA DE PERIODISTAS POR LA PAZ, INC. (UDPP), RELATIVAS A LAS DECLARACIONES DEL PRESIDENTE DE ESTADOS UNIDOS, DONALD TRUMP, EN EL SENTIDO DE QUE LAS HERMANAS REPÚBLICAS DE HAITÍ Y EL SALVADOR ASÍ COMO LOS PUEBLOS DE ÁFRICA SON “HUECOS DE MIERDA”.
The Afrin operation of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) has nothing to do with our country’s national interests. This operation is a new link of Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) interventions against the sovereignty of Syria.
Attacks of imperialist-sponsored reactionary forces have turned the country into a bloodbath and displaced millions of Syrian people since 2011. Although the jihadist gangs were largely repelled, the recent developments prove that all powers are the enemies of stability and peace in Syria.
Peace Committee of Turkey has launched a call for the government of Turkey to take action for full membership of Palestine to the United Nations. Important intellectuals have undersigned this call.
IT IS TIME TO TAKE ACTION FOR FULL MEMBERSHIP OF PALESTINE TO THE UNITED NATIONS
Rising tensions in the global relations and hot beds of old and new crisis call for unity and efforts of all peace forces for closing foreign military bases, particularly U.S. and NATO foreign military bases, around the globe. The peace forces are obligated to send clear message that U.S. and NATO foreign military bases represent the tools of hegemonism, aggression, occupation, and that as such must be closed.
The Peace Committee of Turkey, the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace, and the Cyprus Peace Council successfully held their 8th trilateral meeting on 15-17th December 2017, in İzmir, Turkey under the auspices of the World Peace Council.
Israel’s intervention in the ongoing tensions in the Middle East has intensified again recently. Frequent bombings of Syria, the attempts to escalate the tension with Iran and similar interferences have come to the fore more often.
The U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is in parallel with such developments.
Recently, the President of the USA, Donald Trump announced that the embassy of the USA in Tel Aviv, Israel will be moved to Jerusalem recognizing it as the capital of Israel. As predictable, this has created outrage in the whole world especially in Middle East. We condemn the US President’s move as it drags the Middle East region’s peace to a more vulnerable state.
The Palestinian Committee for Peace and Solidarity (PCPS) salutes all peace loving people all over the world for their position of solidarity with the Palestinian people and their condemnation of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as “capital of Israel” which constitutes a violation of International law and all relevant UN resolutions about Jerusalem which consider Jerusalem as part of occupied the Palestinian land and its eastern part and as a capital of future Palestinian state.
