The Brazilian Center for Solidarity with the Peoples and Struggle for Peace (CEBRAPAZ) vehemently denounces another episode in the ongoing massacre of the Palestinian people by Israel. This regime’s brutality is notorious and not even the mainstream media is able to continue omitting it, or the severity of its repercussions on life in Palestine, which are not only but especially evinced by the reiterated military offensives.

The World Peace Council (WPC) expresses in the strongest way the condemnation of the
assault of the Israeli army against the Palestinian people at the refugee camp of Jenin. The new and
ongoing massacre of the occupation forces with more than 8 Palestinians killed and dozens of

Concerts for Peace in the cities of Coimbra, Gondomar, Viana do Castelo, Matosinhos, Vila Nova de Gaia

this cause that is full of topicality and importance.
After we took to the streets in various cities across the country in March, June and October
2022, and again in February 2023, claiming peace around the world, we found that the
situation in several countries proves the urgency and the need to open and implement paths
to peace.
There are increasingly more, and they sound louder, voices that gather around the defence of

On May 12, the XIV Portugal-Morocco High Level Meeting was held in Lisbon. In the joint
declaration of this meeting, the Portuguese Government, in disregard of the inalienable right
to self-determination of the Sahrawi people, reiterated «its support for the Moroccan
