Official statement by Clare Daly and Mick Wallace on the outcome of the Brussels Activist Peace Forum, May 13, 2023

On May 13 2023, representatives of a number of peace and anti-war organisations from 22 different European countries met in Brussels at a conference hosted by Clare Daly and Mick Wallace MEPs, to discuss the situation of the peace movement in the context of the war in Ukraine.

Those present deplored the suffering and loss of life caused by the war, and shared a profound concern about escalation of the conflict. There was a strong consensus around the need for anti-war forces in Europe to call for a ceasefire, peace negotiations and efforts to diminish the possibility of nuclear war in Europe.
