35K HAVE BEEN MURDERED AND THAT BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS, TOO - CEASEFIRE NOW

2,012 so far! Help us get to 3,000 signers!

As of 2/3, approximately 27,200 - 35,000 Palestinians have been murdered in Gaza since 10/7 by Israel. Approximately 13,642 are children. Taking figures from the same source, Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, about 40% of those murdered are CHILDREN. Take that in for a minute. Figures from back in October & November from multiple NGOs and IGOs, including Save The Children, already proved that the number of children murdered had already surpassed the annual number of children murdered in every other conflict since 2019. The figures we have right now ONLY include those murdered by bombardment, artillery fire, shrapnel, and crushed under the rubble by Israel's military. We do not have the ability to know right now, due to the apocalyptic conditions on the ground, how many MORE have died due to starvation, illness, and other 100% preventable health issues caused by the direct targeting of and intentional destruction of Gaza's healthcare system. These horrific numbers don't include those who have been murdered throughout the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and all other areas of occupied Palestine. We haven't begun to discuss the thousands of children, women, and men who have been illegally abducted, tortured, and executed. I am truly terrified every single day witnessing this genocide unfold. I am disturbed by my government and every other in the world who have been funding, and participating in this. I have never known what terrorism felt like until now and it's because of you. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, the West Bank, and all areas the Israeli military is murdering or otherwise violating the human rights of Palestinians – Secure the safe release of Mansour Shouman, a Palestinian Canadian independent journalist and humanitarian worker who was recently illegally abducted by Israel in Khan Younis on 1/23 while trying to evacuate to Rafah from the Nasser Hospital on a “safe route” as directed by Israel - Call for the immediate end of genocide, apartheid, and occupation, and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom, peace, and their human rights - Call for the immediate release of Palestinian “prisoners” (hostages) held captive in Israeli military prisons - Permanently end all monetary and military aid given to Israel by correcting our budget and enforcing Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel to ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians to help them rebuild, care for the sick & injured, bury the dead with dignity, and ensure all of their basic needs are taken care of - Repeal all federal anti-BDS laws and pass legislation that voids all state-level anti-BDS laws - Restore my right to free speech and the freedom of the press by condemning all discrimination or harassment for criticizing any government or political ideology (including zionism) and by doing everything possible to prevent future assaults to my rights, including governmental control and/or censorship of the Internet
