«We the peoples of United Nations determined:
To save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind;
To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small;
To establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained;
To promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom;

The World Peace Council expresses its categorical and strongest condemnation of the cold-blooded assassination of George Floyd by the police force in Minneapolis, USA.

This recent killing of an unarmed civilian by the police is unfortunately not the first and only case in the United States. Neither is it a phenomenon of the current government only.

In Brazil people live as in a trance, from one nightmare to the other —sometimes, all at once.

The extreme-right group governing the country has advocated for arming its followers, who are instructed to react against opposition forces, social movements and the other Powers of the Republic, the Legislative and Judiciary.

O grupo de extrema direita que governa o país tem investido em armar seus seguidores, orientados a reagir contra as forças de oposição, os movimentos sociais e os demais Poderes da República, o Legislativo e o Judiciário. Manifestantes que apoiam o governo Bolsonaro concentram-se em frente à sede do governo, o Palácio do Planalto, nas ruas e praças das cidades em quarentena e onde está proibido o funcionamento de serviços não essenciais.

El Movimiento Cubano por la Paz y la Soberanía de los Pueblos hace patente el más enérgico llamamiento a todas las organizaciones de paz, en el mundo entero, en aras de que se exija al gobierno de los Estados Unidos que se pronuncie, en torno al ataque terrorista sufrido por la Embajada de la República de Cuba, en su sede de Washington, el pasado 30 de abril.
