IMG_6312In early August CPT-Palestine issued an invitation to join them, Palestinians, and people from all over the world in boycotting Israeli goods and cultural events, divesting from all companies that profit from the occupation of Palestine, and pushing for international sanctions on Israel. In the KAIROS Palestine document (https://www.kairospalestine.ps/) there is a statement from Palestinian Christians saying that advocacy campaigns must not be about “revenge but rather to put an end to the existing evil…to free both peoples from extremist positions of the different Israeli governments, bringing both to justice and reconciliation.” As members of an international peace organization, CPT-Palestine believes that when Palestinians mount nonviolent campaigns against the occupation, team members are morally obligated to support them.  CPT Palestine hopes that this non-violent movement may help equalize the balance of power in ways that could support a different kind of negotiations, ones that lead in the direction dismantling Israel’s military occupation of Palestine.

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.
