THE STORY:

Christian Peacemaker Teams, Inc. wrote -

Christian Peacemaker Teams I Equipos Cristianos de Acción por la Paz: Colombia

We are an International organization working as allies for and partner with communities who are threatened with displacement and violence. We support their initiatives to promote justice and peace and their resistance to attempts by those who oppress them and seek to dispossess them of their land, culture and livelihoods.

You can support us by donating and becoming a part of our team to help us reach this goal.

We work together on grassroots initiatives to expose and transform structures of domination and oppression through active nonviolence in order to make possible a world grounded in respect, justice and love, even of enemies.

We have been accompanying local grassroots initiatives for peace in the central valley of the Magdalena Medio since 2001. Colombia's largest oil refinery in Barrancabermeja, the city out of which we are based, is a small window into the dynamics of armed violence both legal and illegal on its citizenrary, particularly small farmers, women, children and youth, workers, and human rights workers in the region and beyond.

The journey of nonviolent change is a long one. Though we've recently had positive news that has instilled hope in us and the communities of Las Pavas and Garzal and Nueva Esperanza. These farming communities have been defending their right to remain on the land in spite of violence, death threats and displacement.

Your support and advocay for us this holiday season is vital. Most of our funding comes from individual donors and small institutions. This work cannot happen with out your voice and financial contributions.

If we raise the highest amount during the Mozilla Firefox Challenge (Nov 19, 2012 - Jan 10, 2013) Firefox will contribute $50,000 to our organization -- which will go a long way to furthering the work of peace here in Colombia.

You can support us by donating and becoming a part of our team to help us reach this goal. If you have any question on how this works, let us know. SHARE THE WORD!

We also have teams in Palestine, Iraqi Kurdistan, and in US/Canada - Aboriginal Justice
