CPTnet 23 December 2010 IRAQ REFLECTION: Surrendering the pieces by Tiffany Aurora [Note: The following reflection by a member of the 14-27 October CPT delegation
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.
