CPT INTERNATIONAL: Christian Peacemaker Teams statement on U.S./Iranian tensions in Iraq 

Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) calls for an immediate end to all U.S. and Iranian military escalations and a deepened commitment to diplomacy in the region. The world has watched as the governments of the United States and The Islamic Republic of Iran teeter on the brink of war as their armed forces launched drone strikes and ballistic missiles at various targets within the borders of Iraq. 

U.S./MEXICO BORDERLANDS: Specifics and the Systems on the Border

It's easy to get lost in the daily needs, or discouraged by the magnitude of the crushing oppression on the U.S.-Mexico border.  CPT's mission to back partners as a part of transforming violence and oppression requires us to attend to the details of the immediate situation, and to the sources of the oppression that grows into violence.  Between the specifics and the systems, our presence and action strategically strengthen the forces for good.

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.

Take Action: CPT Rejects the Revised US Position on Israeli Settlements

On November 18, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a news conference, “the establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law.” Pompeo’s comment reverses a forty year US foreign policy position. This counter-productive decision has been condemned by Palestinians, the United Nations, and the European Union among others. Christian Peacemaker Teams, whose history of working for peace and justice in Occupied Palestine dates back to 1995, rejects the revised position of the U.S. government.
