Oraciones para les Constructores de Paz, 12 de Febrero del 2020 Kurdistán Iraquí

Hoy, recordemos en nuestras oraciones las luchas de los pueblos Indígenas para detener la destrucción continua de sus tierras ancestrales en el Kurdistán Iraquí, en la Isla Tortuga, en Palestina y alrededor de todo el mundo. La sed insaciable del mundo por los recursos que las industrias transnacionales y locales buscan satisfacer es más fuerte que el respeto de los gobiernos por los derechos humanos—incluyendo los derechos de los pueblos Indígenas—y los derechos de Pachamama/Madre Tierra. La semana pasada vimos un ejemplo de esta falta de respeto cuando la policía Canadiense, fuertemente militarizada, protegió a una compañía de combustibles fósiles que destruía la tierra de Wet’suwet’en, tal como las compañías petroleras han hecho con las granjas y aldeas Kurdas en Kurdistán.

Prayers for Peacemakers 22 January 2020 Turtle Island

Solidarity march in Toronto with Wet’suwet’en

Please pray for a restorative response on the part of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Coastal Gaslink, the British Columbian and the Canadian Federal government to the eviction of Coastal Gaslink by the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, who expelled Coastal Gaslink from their territory in north-central British Columbia. Pray for a just peace to arise from the standoff.

CPT INTERNATIONAL: Respect the Demands of the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Leaders & Land Defenders

Statement of Solidarity: Christian Peacemaker Teams stands with the Wet’suwet’en land defenders and all Indigenous people protecting their rights and the environmental integrity of their homelands. CPT is deeply concerned with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s maneuvers this week to establish an “Exclusion Zone” on Wet’suwet’en territory— barring media and clan members from entering— which effectively reinstates a colonial and an apartheid era pass system.

Prayers for Peacemakers 11 December 2019  Turtle Island

We give thanks for the years of advocacy and relationship-building work of the Haudenosaunee Wildlife and Habitat Authority. We are grateful for the cultural vitality of Indigenous Nations across Turtle Island, who maintain the spiritual and cultural traditions of mutual respect and with Creation and with other nations. With Christian communities around with world celebrating Advent III (Joy), we share our grateful joy at a successful harvest uninterrupted by non-Indigenous protestors.
