Activities - Press Releases

Lisabon Summit, Oct.2010:

The leaders of 28 NATO states will meet in Lisbon Portugal November 19/20th 2010, to adopt the Concept of the new NATO strategy for the period up to 2020.

The elite gathering will be a focal point of mass protest organized by the World Peace Council (WPC) and its Portuguese affiliate the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC). It has been announced recently at the WPC (Europe) meeting in Brussels, that 107 peace, trade union, students, human rights and other associations are preparing massive anti-NATO demonstrations in Lisbon on 20th of November. They expect that their partners associations from abroad will also take part. The demonstrations will expose the so-called new NATO Strategic Concept, a euphemism for plans to expand NATO’s mandate to launch interventionist wars at will and in all corners of the globe.

Aggression against Serbia (Yugoslavia) 1999, carried out without consent of the UN Security Council and contrary to the Alliance’s Founding Act, was in fact the beginning of offensive, global interventionist’s strategy of NATO, in practice. NATO aggression left over 3.500 dead, about 10.000 wounded, over 100 billion of economic damage, polluted soil, water and air. It led to unilateral secession of the Serbian Province of Kosovo and Metohija which remains  long term sources of instability in this part of Europe.
