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.

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.

Prayers for Peacemakers 1 January 2020

We pray that the victims of systematic violence, as well as their families and communities, may find the truth, peace, restitution and justice they deserve after spending more than 60 years in conflict. We pray for the members of the Congress who have an important task to protect and guarantee the victim's rights and allow the transitional justice to interact with ongoing laws in order to fulfill guarantees for reparation and non-repetition.

Prayers for Peacemakers, 18 December 2019

Please pray for the asylum seekers waiting in Agua Prieta, Sonora who are knocking on the doors of the U.S. asking to come in from the cold and the hunger and the sickness and the violence.  Pray for the volunteers from both countries who are providing support for these people.  Pray for the U.S. Customs workers who stand at the door, and pray for U.S. government officials that they might find a way to provide welcome.
