The WPC denounces and repudiates all attempts at imperialist interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela, including attempts to attack, subvert and remove the democratically elected Government.

We make this CALL against the background of the impending 6th of December 2015 Parliamentary Elections of Venezuela and the clear evidence that has emerged of an orchestrated and coordinated attack of reactionary external and domestic forces and elite to dilute the people’s will and determination.

The 24 of October is when we celebrate the UN Day, which must bring considerations about one of the peoples' most important instruments in their struggle for peace, and about the challenges ahead.

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations demands an initial reflection on the peoples' resistance in their confrontation against Nazi-Fascism and the horrifying consequences. Seven decades ago, the planet was celebrating Victory and the end of the World War II, which killed over 3% of the world's population and brought inestimable costs to humanity.

The Brazilian Center for Solidarity with the Peoples and Struggle for Peace (Cebrapaz) again manifests its deepest concerns about the latest developments in occupied Palestine, where the Palestinian people bravely resists against another wave of violence by the Zionist regime and the settlers it protects.

Blood policies must be abandoned

Around a hundred people lost their lives and many more were injured in a bomb attack that took place in Ankara, Turkey, before the demonstration that bore the slogan "Against War, Peace Now". This attack aims at terrorising not only the demonstrators but the whole society. The perpetrators try to make our people accustomed to terror and violence. Their aim is to make the people feel desperate and thus stay away from the streets.

NATO has announced it will undertake large scale military manoeuvres in Spain, Italy and Portugal, from the beginning of October until the beginning of November 2015. These exercises will involve more than 36 000 personnel from the 28 member states of this political military bloc and from other “partner” countries and organizations.

For us in the World Peace Council, it was a great satisfaction and joy to see, this September 30, the historical moment in which Palestine's flag was raised at the UN headquarters. The occasion is filled with symbolism and asks for a reflection, since it translates, above all, the hope vested by the Palestinian people in this organization for 70 years.
