Long-time CPT-Iraq team member, Peggy Gish, has been working on a crisis team in Nigeria for the Church of the Brethren, one of CPT’s sponsoring denominations.   An estimated 600,000 members of the Nigerian Church of the Brethren (the EYN) have been affected by the violence of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria.  Local church leaders are committed to helping people heal from the trauma and reconcile with their Muslim neighbors who have also suffered a great deal.   Read Gish’s stories on her website: https://plottingpeace.wordpress.com.

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.
