We have entered a new month. The summer holidays are over, and everyday life is back to normal. But not everyone went on vacation this summer; some never do. Nor can they set up their “daily” routines—as some do—every September. People are stuck at EU borders, in closed detention centers, or on the Greek isles because someone with power and influence has decided that they are illegal. They decide by a flip of a pen on paper that people on the move can be tagged and controlled, beaten and disposed of. Migrants are only trying to create new lives away from war, danger and insecurity but a select few do not allow them to do so.

We pray for all those who are exercising their human right to movement, safety and security, despite the dehumanizing treatment that awaits them. We, CPT-Aegean Migrant Solidarity, stand against all forms of exploitation and oppression so that together we can all strive for a better life.

A person wearing a CPT vest stands on the left of the image, to her right stand two other people, one wearing a hijab and the other is a child with braids. They all look towards a doorway, where there is a person standing in a long white robe.

“If you want peace, work for justice”

Cameras are a threat to the Israeli occupation forces, and those who document human rights abuses are often attacked by Israeli soldiers and settlers. Pray for witnesses of injustice who uncover the truth.

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.
