Christina Gibb, a Quaker from Dunedin, was in Hebron with Christian Peacemakers Teams (CPT) for three months late last year. Starting on Thursday, 2 March, she will be travelling to some North Island cities and will be speaking about her time in Hebron and about CPT's work in Palestine and Iraq - below are the confirmed details of her speaking schedule, further updates to the schedule will be added as they become available.

If you are not able to get to one of Christina's public meetings, her excellent articles, with photos, about her time in Hebron are available on this web page; media coverage of her speaking tour will be added there.

Regularly updated information on the four Christian Peacemakers - Harmeet Sooden, Jim Loney, Norman Kember, and Tom Fox - who were abducted in Baghdad last November, and the opportunity to send them a message of support, is available on this web page - currently the most frequently updated section of the web page is 'Links to overseas statements'.
