Protect our right to free speech

To: Rep. Auchincloss, Sen. Markey, Sen. Warren

From: A constituent in Newton Highlands, MA

April 26

Today, 4/25, Israeli forces murdered a Belgian aid worker and his 7yo child in Rafah. Israel has proven time and time again they do not care who they murder. Their intentions have been clear as day this entire time – their indiscriminate destruction of Gaza, the West Bank, and other areas of occupied Palestine prove this is and always has been a genocide. I am so deeply ashamed of being American. Then, there’s the full mask off fascism exposed by the disturbing, violent overreach against student protestors across the country, we are supposed to have the right to freedoms of peaceful assembly and speech. We all know now we never had these rights, but it’s still worth calling out. Are you truly that bought by Israeli lobbies that you will take orders from a foreign country to suppress our rights? I demand that you: – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed SOURCES Al Jazeera 4/25 Live Updates Al Jazeera “What could be the consequences if Israel invades Rafah?“ The New York Times “Netanyahu Calls U.S. Student Protests Antisemitic and Says They Must Be Quelled“
