Prayers for Peacemakers. 26 January 2017

Please pray for kak Awat Hassan and his
family who CPT Iraqi Kurdistan accompanies day and night after members of the
security forces have threatened to kill him. Kak Awat Hassan is a
teacher and one of the main organizers of a strike that
thousands of teachers have carried on since September 2016. They
call on the ruling parties to deal with corruption and to resume
payments of the teachers’ and other employees’ full salaries.

Please pray for the four members of CPT
Iraqi Kurdistan team who experience exhaustion from the high stress
situation as they engage in the full time accompaniment and advocacy
work for safety of kak Awat and his family.

Please remember in your prayers the large numbers of civil rights activists, social leaders and journalists
who are at high risk of detention, beatings, kidnappings or
assassinations in Iraqi Kurdistan, Colombia and around the world.

Psalm 139: 1-3

LORD, you have searched me, and you know me.

 You know my sitting down and my rising up. You perceive my thoughts from afar.

You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.

Privilege of movement

Basic freedom of movement in Palestine—walking to the grocery store, driving to visit family, or flying internationally—depends on your nationality, race, and religion. As a Palestinian, you are denied these rights as others in your country move freely.
