Peace is a collective construction.
Humanists condemn the threat of attack on Syria by the Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) at the request of the United States of America. It is a despicable attitude that is intended to solve from third countries a political confrontation inside another country, and even more when they intend bombing a population.
Again the world is on tenterhooks by the irrationality of belligerent states and their ruling classes so we humanists raise our voices yet again to condemn in the strongest terms those who despise life, or place life secondary to other values.
May we express our fraternal greetings and solidarity to our brothers
of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela at this time when it is
important to know that they are not alone.
President Chavez is not dead, his figure will remain in the hearts of
all free men and women of the world; his actions will never stop, not
ever, and those people who have shared his ideals are the people who
will carry out the dream of Bolivar, of Chavez and many others.
We humanists that share the first and last ideal of a Universal Human
Nation and who, like Chavez, work every day side by side with those

The International Federation of Humanist Parties (Humanist International) rejects and condemns French military intervention in the Republic of Mali, with the purported excuse to stop the advance of groups accused of terrorism.

Next October 7 the presidential elections are to be held in the Republic Of Venezuela that constitute a milestone in the process of structural change taking place in that country and in many others in South American. In response, the Coordinating Team of the International Federation of Humanist Parties (Humanist International) established and communicates its position, as below: –We support the transformation process with a humanistic sense that leads the President Hugo Chavez Frias in the context of a Latin America in a way that works for the advancement of the people.
For this we need to make it known that:
From 01/06/12 to 03/06/12 inclusive, will be carried out simultaneously, international internal elections with the participation of the full members from 22 countries in 4 continents.
We inform that the data update of the full members came out much slower than projected, because we had to verify one by one the names of registered users in the web with the paid collections listings. For this reason we are forced to postpone the elections date so we ensure that everyone who has registered and paid the collection within the time can vote.
We decided then to postpone the elections one week, so those will be carried out from 01/06/12 to 03/06/12 inclusive.
When humanists observe and participate in social, political and economic processes around the world, we cannot but reflect about the relevance to this moment of history of the Statement of the Humanist Movement written by Silo in 1993[^1] . From its reading we can understand to what degree the path of history has confirmed the tendencies that this document explained and to what degree—today more than ever—the union of all humanists of the world has become necessary so that the deepest human aspirations may be turned into reality.
In this moment of history, and as a political party inspired by this current of Universalist Humanism, we find it necessary to analyse the present situation in order to develop proposals for action in the present global context.

The interview was made by Olivier Turquet from Pressenza August 11, 2011.
Humanists of the world reject international terrorism whether it be political or religious in nature or of any other kind and we repudiate all crimes committed in any part of the world. This is a line of conduct and a position maintained in time and impossible for us to abandon without putting our identity and our doctrine of Humanism and Nonviolence in jeopardy.
The death of Osama bin Laden—like any other individual—is not going to change the danger to world peace that comes from groups of fanatics but it reminds us of the international relevance of the issue and the need to achieve world peace and the integration of all cultures as an effective means to overcome the apparent causes of danger.
