The World Peace Council receives the news, with triumphal joy, from the revolutionary island of Cuba, that the five Cuban heroes and anti-terrorists returned home. After 16 years away from their homes and their homeland, arbitrarily and illegally incarcerated in the USA, the release of the remaining three patriots Tony, Ramón and Gerardo coincides with the moment in which the relations between the US and Cuba are being re-evaluated.
The World Peace Council manifests again its complete condemnation against the Israeli regime’s criminal actions and reiterates its unrestricted solidarity to the Palestinian people in their struggle against the Zionist oppression and occupation. We sadly and outragedly denounce the escalation in violence by the Israeli forces, which again impose brutal and fatal repression on the Palestinians protesting against occupation.

The ongoing slaughter of the Palestinian people by the Israeli army has no ending. More than 570 Palestinians were murdered,thousands are injured and many more displaced.Most of the victims are civilians, amongst them dozens of women and children. The Palestinian Gaza Strip has become a theater of unilateral war of the occupation forces of Israel,against a people which is being deprived of its independence,freedom and the right for a State.
With the participation of many Palestinians and Cypriots a demonstration took place in Nicosia against Israeli barbarity, on last Saturday July 12th, outside Israeli Embassy. The demonstration was organized by the Palestinian Community in Cyprus and supported by Cyprus Peace Council (CPC). Many of Cyprus Peace Council members were present at the demonstration, amongst them the President of CPC Sylva Tiggiridou, the GS of CPC Christos Kourtellaris and the Secretariat members Akis Phokas and Charis Pashias. EDON also responded at Cyprus Peace Council’s call for participation in the activity.
The All India Peace & Solidarity Organisation condemns the ongoing murderous attacks of the Israeli armed forces against Palestinian people in the Gaza strip that resulted in number of deaths and loss of valuable properties. It is becoming habit of the Israeli occupation forces to attack the Palestinian people in the most heinous way to curb their struggle for an independent Palestinian state. The Israeli occupation army’s aggression is being encouraged by the USA and other countries of European Union.
The World Peace Council expresses its outrage with the ongoing bombardment of the Palestinian Gaza strip by the Israeli occupation forces which have resulted already in more than 100 dead and hundreds of injured, majority civilians and even children amongst them.
We condemn the brutal murderous attack by the Israeli Air Force against the Palestinian people aiming at the collective punishment of a people struggling for its inalienable right for an independent state and with obvious goals to obstruct any kind of negotiations and peace settlement in the decades long occupation.
The All India Peace & Solidarity Organisation expresses serious concern over the sharply deteriorating conditions in Iraq, which is under threat from the brutal and sectarian ISIS forces. After capturing big cities such as Mosul in the North and the border areas between Iraq, Syria and Jordan, these forces are now advancing towards the capital city of Baghdad.
The crisis and killings in Iraq are going on, having its people as victim. From the open imperialist invasion of the USA and its willing allies in 2003 hundreds of thousands Iraqis died, got injured, displaced along with the destruction of monuments of an ancient civilization, infrastructure and entire cities.
