Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation



Political-cultural event
February 22nd - 18h
Voz do Operário - Lisboa

Raising the defence of peace as the prominent issue given Trump's reiterated threat of militarily attacking Venezuela and the Venezuelan people, organizations promote a political-cultural event on February 22nd, beginning at 18 at Voz do Operário, in Lisbon.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) expresses profound indignation at the Portuguese Government's recognition of the US puppet Juan Guaidó's self-proclamation as "president" of Venezuela, in complete disrespect for the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic and International Law.

Seventeen years after the Israeli imprisonment of the Palestinian MP Ahmad Sa’adat, perpetrated on January 15th 2002, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) reaffirms the demand for his liberation, as well as the liberation of all other Palestinian political prisoners —more than 5000, many of which children— incarcerated in Israeli prisons.

Ten years since Israel's criminal aggression on the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip, designated by the aggressor as 'Operation Cast Lead', the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) reiterates is solidarity with the Palestinian people and their courageous struggle for a sovereign, independent and viable State of Palestine, along the pre-1967 borders, with capital in West Jerusalem, and for respect of the right of return of Palestinian refugees, as inscribed in numerous United Nations resolutions.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation commemorated September 21 the International Day of Peace, promoting several initiatives in several cities throughout the country, and by making public the text below.

September 21 – International Day of Peace
Let us broaden our action for peace, for disarmament, for solidarity

Regardless of a later assessment, the conclusions of the NATO summit held in Brussels on July 11 and 12 confirm what the CPPC and the more than 40 organisations that joined the campaign “Yes to Peace! No to NATO! “said soon after its objectives were known, namely that this summit was aimed at “strengthening the warmongering intervention capacity” of this aggressive political-military bloc. This is, in fact, the serious and dangerous path to which the Portuguese Government has unacceptably associated Portugal.

July 5, in a meeting with Mr. José Matos Correia, Vice-President of the Portuguese Parliament, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) handed more than 13,000 signatures collected for a petition demanding that the Portuguese authorities sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Considering the number of signatures, the petition will be debated in a plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic.
