from the Kurdish village of Gullan and was a member of the most recent Iraqi

villages facing exploitation of land by
multinational oil conglomerates.
CPT is an international organization that works for peace
and human rights. CPT is valuable,
especially in our world today, which is so full of conflict. Some people believe that violence is the
only solution to conflict, and beautiful cultures and ecosystems are the
victims of these violent solutions. People, animals, and plants are destroyed for the benefit of
a small group of powerful people. CPT should do more to search for the sources of violence,
educate people about these sources, and publish this information for everyone
to read. If people do not develop
violent solutions, then we can stop violence.
CPT should also plant in all peopleâ€™s souls the willingness
to apologize, and this will over time become part of our culture. Planting this willingness is not easy
work, but doing so will help us respect ourselves as human beings and have true
freedom, where we are not divided by religion, culture, ideology, or racism. We are all equal in our time on earth
and our trip to the sky, and we have freedom in what we do.
