KAIROS loses CIDA funding...

KAIROS - Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives - has had funding for 2009 - 2013 declined by CIDA - without any written explanation. Speculation is that the Harper government is punishing KAIROS for its stand on climate justice, including their raising awareness about the tar sands. Their views on finding a just settlement in Israel/Palestine may have been a major factor in this retributive move.

KAIROS asking people to take urgent action to let the government know the impact that this will have on their overseas partners.
