Bebol Bower*

by Ehab Lotayef (CPT Delegate)

They came
The rich and the boor
The tall and the small
They came
The cultured and the crude
The young and the old

They came
Leaving back the fear
they wore for years
… and came

In Egybt:
The Nile is once again flowing
The wheat is once again growing
The bebol took back the street
Standing strong and
falling broud

Bower to the bebol
beyond misbronunciation

For what’s in a “P”
You don’t need it

to say “I’m free”

 

Quebec, Canada – January 27, 2011

* The English P does not exist in the Arabic language.  Many Egyptians replace the P sound, pronouncing it as B.

Shams

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.
