Americas oppose the actions of the Israeli government. Stop the genocide.

To: Gov. Newsom, Asm. Gallagher, Sen. Dahle

From: A constituent in Red Bluff, CA

May 6

I write to you today with the utmost urgency regarding the escalating situation in Rafah. Despite warnings from its allies, Israel has initiated a ground invasion into Rafah, exacerbating an already dire humanitarian crisis. With more than 1.5 million individuals seeking refuge in and around Rafah, the pre-war population of 280,000 has been vastly overwhelmed, leaving Gazan civilians with nowhere to seek safety. After seven months of nonstop terror. After 16 years of walling them in to what human rights organisations refer to as a ‘concentration camp’. After 75 years of military dictatorship, abduction, and torture. After forcefully displacing them and their ancestors from their land during the Nakba in 1948.  Israel persists in its campaign of collective punishment against the Palestinian populace of Gaza, perpetuating another night of relentless bombardment on Rafah.  It is imperative that action be taken in line with the directives issued by the US, UK, Australia, and the European Union, explicitly urging Israel to refrain from entering Rafah. I implore you to stand by these directives and take immediate steps to halt ALL arms sales to Israel, sanction the apartheid state, and freeze all overseas assets belonging to the rogue state. Failure to act in the face of this grave humanitarian crisis is not acceptable. The evidence of genocide being committed is irrefutable, as leading Israeli politicians continue to use rhetoric of genocidal intent and the government announces plans that require the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Gaza. I write to you today to ensure that you cannot claim ignorance of these facts. The urgency and severity of these war crimes cannot be overstated, and it is imperative that we act with conviction and clarity in response.
