un article par Georgina Camacho Leyva, Trabajadores. Órgano de la Central de Trabajadores de Cuba

An international seminar for the abolition of foreign military bases and an inter-religious dialogue for world peace, will be two of the activities that the Cuban Movement for Peace and Sovereignty of the Peoples (Movpaz) plans to develop this year with support from other institutions.

Many tasks lie ahead in their efforts to transmit and instill a civic culture of peace, as evidenced in the recently concluded survey of the institution's activities.

The Pedagogy 2015 meeting will be held in Havana from 26 to 30 January. It will be the Latin American and Caribbean Forum as a peace zone and will discuss the causes of confrontations in the area.

Silvio Platero, president of the Movement, announced to attendees including peace activists, journalists and members of other institutions, the celebration of the annual edition of the competition "Children paint for peace", in conjunction with the awards of the José Martí Pioneer Organization pioneers, that coincides with the International Day of Peace on September 21. He also announced the tour of the Cuban provinces of an exhibition of allegorical posters for peace and against war, with the collaboration of the Cuban Association of Social Communicators.

They also recalled the 65th anniversary of the founding of the organization, whose priorities remain the complaint of the blockade against Cuba, and the international struggle for the return of three of the Cuban Five (Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero and Ramón Labañino) unjustly imprisoned in the United States until last December 17.

Among the many tasks with the aim of promoting peace, the Cuban Movement continues to advocate for the elimination of nuclear weapons and general disarmament.

Meanwhile, nuclear disarmament efforts remain stalled, despite strong and growing global popular sentiment in support of this cause.

The failure of these negotiations and this month's anniversaries of the atomic bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki provide a good opportunity to explore what has gone wrong, why disarmament and arms control have proven so difficult to achieve, and how the world community can get back on track towards these vitally important goals.

Many defence establishments now recognize that security means far more than protecting borders. Grave security concerns can arise as a result of demographic trends, chronic poverty, economic inequality, environmental degradation, pandemic diseases, organized crime, repressive governance and other developments no state can control alone. Arms can't address such concerns.

Yet there has been a troubling lag between recognizing these new security challenges, and launching new policies to address them. National budget priorities still tend to reflect the old paradigms. Massive military spending and new investments in modernizing nuclear weapons have left the world over-armed -- and peace under-funded.

Last year, global military spending reportedly exceeded $1.7 trillion – more than $4.6 billion a day, which alone is almost twice the UN's budget for an entire year. This largesse includes billions more for modernizing nuclear arsenals decades into the future.
