The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) condemns and repudiates the fascist actions against democracy in Brazil, namely the attempted coups against Brazilian federal institutions that took place yesterday, January 8, a few days after the
new president Lula da Silva was sworn into office.

On International Migrants Day, which is celebrated annually on December 18, after being adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) remembers all those who, pushed by wars, sanctions

the direct involvement of the UN Secretary General in the necessary negotiations.

On the 26th of October, in Lisbon, and the 27th of October, in Porto, the CPPC held public actions in defense of Peace!
Hundreds of participants reaffirmed the urgency of replacing foreign interference, the arms race, the threat of the use of force and the use of force in international relations with diplomacy and respect for the principles of international law.
