The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity repudiates the bombing of Syria ordered by the government of Donald Trump, with the support of its allies France and England.
After many long and bloody years of war against the democratically elected government of Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian people and their government finally managed to defeat the Islamic State forces, and are now just beginning the process of rebuilding their destroyed country.
This cowardly attack based on lies is an attempt to set that process back and was designed to give a green light to those very mercenary forces to re group with the West at their backs in continuing to create mayhem throughout Syria and the Middle East.

With broad participation from youth, trade unions, indigenous peoples, social groups, and progressive political parties from across Latin America and the Caribbean, the Alternative Summit of the Peoples opened in Lima, Peru, yesterday, April 10.
The event was officially inaugurated in the capital city’s Derrama Magisterial auditorium and will continue through the 14th, with an extensive agenda of workshops on the region’s principal problems.
Gerónimo López, secretary general of the Peruvian General Federation of Workers, one of the Summit’s organizers, assured the Cuban press that U.S. President Trump’s decision to cancel his trip to Peru will not stop the planned anti-imperialist mobilizations.
