Chicago: Fall and Winter CPT Delegations announced
Christian Peacemaker Teams announces the following delegations planned for
Fall 1999 and Winter 2000:
Middle East: November 18-30, 1999 and February 4-16, 2000. Rebuilders
Against Bulldozers Teams will meet with Israeli and Palestinian peace and
human rights workers and then join with CPT's long-term team in Hebron to
document cases of Palestinian families whose homes are threatened with
demolition by Israeli authorities. Cost is $1700 US.
Chiapas, Mexico: November 4-15, 1999 and February 18-29, 2000.
Delegates will learn about justice issues underlying the conflict in this
southern Mexican state and meet with villagers facing ongoing violence and
harassment from soldiers and paramilitary groups. Cost is $1000 US.
CPT is a faith-based group that seeks participants for all delegations who
are interested in international human rights work, commited to nonviolence,
and willing to participate in team worship and reflection. The delegation
experience usually culminates in a nonviolent public witness that challenges
structural violence. Delegates should have plans to share
about the trip upon return to their home communities and congregations.
The cost covers roundtrip airfare from a designated U.S. or Canadian city,
all on-ground travel, two meals a day, simple accommodations, and all
honorariums and delegation fees. For more information or to apply, contact
CPT at the address below.
