The Constitution of the Portuguese Republic was approved and promulgated on April 2, 1976. The Constitution enshrines broad democratic rights – political, social, economic and cultural – won by the Portuguese people with the April Revolution, which began on April 25, 1974, and, in particular, stipulates that Portugal's external relations be guided by the respect for sovereignty and national independence, a policy of peace, friendship and cooperation with all the peoples of the world.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) strongly rejects the statement by the Portuguese Minister of Foreign Affairs (MNE), on March 31, which constitutes a new and unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, an affront to the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people and, consequently, a disregard for the principles of the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic, the UN Charter and international law.

The below signed movements, organisations and individuals raise our voices in solidarity with the Venezuelan people who today are the victims of a brutal siege and criminal sanctions by imperialist powers. Today, April 19, 2020, as the 210th anniversary of the Venezuelan people's cry for independence against the domination of the former Spanish empire is commemorated, we express our firm support for the struggle of the Venezuelan people to preserve this independence and to exercise their right to sovereignty and self-determination.

Los movimientos, organizaciones e individualidades abajo firmantes, levantamos nuestras voces en solidaridad con el pueblo venezolano que hoy es víctima de un brutal asedio y criminales sanciones por parte de las potencias imperialistas. Hoy 19 de abril del 2020, al conmemorarse el 210 aniversario del grito de independencia del pueblo Venezolano contra la dominación del otrora imperio español, manifestamos nuestro firme respaldo a las luchas del pueblo venezolano por preservar su independencia y a ejercer su derecho a la soberanía y autodeterminación.


The complex and very unpredictable moment that we are experiencing, which restricts our usual socialisation, demands a broader vision and a closer look on what is happening, namely on the suffering of the peoples of the most vulnerable countries and the behaviour of the great powers at European and world level, when more solidarity and cooperation is required and a redoubled effort to put an end to the unacceptable recourse of economic and military aggression in international relations.

Dear Friends of Peace, Justice and Human Rights Around the World,

The global spread of COVID-19 has exposed the illegal and immoral practice of imposing unilateral coercive measures (economic sanctions) by the United States government against more than thirty nations. The economic war against those nations had already resulted in unimaginable suffering of the people in the targeted nations even before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The World Peace Council (WPC) strongly condemns the shameful destruction of the memorial of Marshal of the Soviet Union Ivan Stepanovich Konev, commander of the Red Army which 75 years ago liberated Prague and brought peace. The disgraceful action carried out by the municipality of Prague 6 is an act of revenge and anti-communism and constitutes one more effort to make history forgotten and to re-write history.
