Prayers for Peacemakers 25 March 2020 Iraqi Kurdistan

Please pray for all Christian Peacemaker Teams and their partners as they are affected by COVID-19 and government responses to this virus. The teams, including CPT Iraqi Kurdistan, and their partners are living under quarantines in response to COVID-19. Even as this pandemic spreads, state violence and oppression still affect our partners just as they did before Covid-19 appeared in Wuhan, China.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 18 March 2020  Palestine

Please hold the people of Palestine in your hearts and minds.  In particular, we ask you to remember the following young lives so cruelly and unnecessarily cut short by in February:  Salah Zakarneh, age 17 years, killed by a bullet through his chest from a Palestinian Authority Security Forces’ gun in the village of Qabatiya near Nablus, and Mohammad Salman Toameh Al-Hadad age 16 years, also killed by a bullet through his chest, but from an Israeli soldier’s gun, in the city of Hebron. Please remember their families as they mourn and begin to grieve for the loss of their sons and brothers.

Oraciones por les Constructores de Paz, 26 de Febrero del 2020 Solidaridad con Migrante Egeo

Por favor, oremos por el deterioro de la situación en Lesbos y en las otras islas Griegas. Además de la nueva ley de asilo, que es más estricta y que el gobierno comenzó a implementar en Enero, el gobierno central también está impulsando su plan para construir centros de detención cerrados para migrantes en las islas Griegas; a pesar de las protestas del gobierno regional, los gobiernos locales y las personas Griegas locales.

Many of those present had just participated in the 6th annual 45-mile march and sacred run from the San Carlos Apache reservation to Chich’il Bildagoteel.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 26 February 2020  Aegean Migrant Solidarity

Please pray for the deteriorating situation on Lesvos and the other Greek islands.  Apart from the new asylum law, which is stricter and which the government began implementing in January, the central government is also pushing through its plan to build closed detention centers for migrants on the Greek islands, in spite of the regional government, local governments and local Greek people protesting. 

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.
