Aegean Migrant Solidarity: In September 2020 Moria camp burned down. Six young men - all Afghan, all teenagers, mostly children - were made scapegoats for the fire. This demonstrated the failures of Greek and EU policy on migration - policies which turned Moria camp into a ghetto, containing Lesvos island's second highest population. In 2021, their trials began in Chios island. The CPT - AMS team joined their partners to demand that the boys receive a fair trial. As they were led from court, the team chanted 'Azadi' ('freedom' in Farsi). Despite the justice system's best efforts, the boys were not tried in the dark and they were not alone.

Palestine: In 2021, the CPT - Palestine team joined the Defund Racism Campaign, a Palestinian-led movement to stop the systematic exploitation of US-based charities and their financing of apartheid and Palestinian displacement.

Palestine: "We're not moving from here," responded the Palestinian community to the invasion of the Old City by the Israeli army and a group of settlers. This incursion into Hebron’s marketplace happens every Saturday. On this particular day, the Israeli soldiers and settlers saw the people's insistence to carry out a legacy music concert, and they withdrew without completing their tour for the first time in eight years.
