CPT Aboriginal Justice Delegations to Treaty #3 Territory (Northwestern Ontario) are scheduled for 13-23 August 2010 and 24 September-6 October 2010.

Corporate clear-cut logging of Asub-peeschoseewagong traditional territory has destroyed hunting, trapping, food, and medicine gathering activities of First Nations people.  Indian Residential Schools have deeply affected families and communities.  Mercury contamination, discovered over 40 years ago, continues to poison area residents.

Explore what it means to live in right relationship with the earth and each other.  Find out what it means to be an ally to indigenous communities engaged in healing, resisting colonialism, and struggling for sovereignty.  From a base in the city of Kenora, and in visits to Asubpeeschoseewagong traditional lands, delegates will meet with Indigenous and non-Indigenous community leaders and residents.  Participants will develop an analysis of colonialism, participate in undoing racism training, and plan a public witness/nonviolent action as appropriate to confront issues of structural violence.

Fundraising Goal: $525 Cdn or U.S.;  delegates arrange and pay for their own travel to Kenora, Ontario.  Contact Claire Evans (delegations@cpt.org) to apply.

Shams was just playing football, but for Israeli occupation soldiers that’s enough to detain, arrest, beat and threaten to death an 11-year-old child.

Mail Alert

We want to inform our constituents about interruptions to both Canadian and US mail services.

As global capitalism continues to exploit, Canada is seeing an increase of folks sleeping on the street. In Toronto, there is a growing encampment on the church property where our office is located. CPT is in solidarity with residents of the encampment.  Unfortunately, some Canada Post workers have since refused to deliver mail to our office. We are unsure if the mail is being stored somewhere or will be returned to sender. To ensure your donations make it to CPT, now would be a good time to switch to online donations, if you are able.  

In the US, postal services have been increasingly unreliable. If you are able, we encourage you to consider a monthly online giving plan which you can easily set up.
