In Palestine (or the Occupied Territories), CPTers work in at-Tuwani and Hebron. Among other activities, they act as human shields when needed and walk children to school.
Here's some info gleaned from their website:
- Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) was started in 1984.
- It arose from a call for Christians to devote the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war.
- It began out of Mennonite, Brethren, and Quaker roots.
- It's "Biblically-based and spiritually-centered."
- It believes in risking injury and death in unarmed attempts to transform lethal conflict by the power of God’s truth and love.
