Resistbot Petition: 186,000 DEAD IN GAZA - STOP THIS GENOCIDE

An open letter to the President & U.S. Congress

186,000 DEAD IN GAZA - STOP THIS GENOCIDE

127 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

On 7/5, The Lancet, a well respected, global medical journal published a paper "Counting the dead in Gaza: difficult but essential", by several academics providing an estimate of the number who have been murdered since 10/7. By their own methodology they advise is the most conservative estimate, upwards of 186,000 Palestinians have been murdered. This makes nearly 8% of the entire population. Their statistics account for all whose deaths are directly contributable to Israel's destruction of Gaza's entire infraustructure from lack of healthcare, limited to no access to clean water, starvation, preventable disease spread due to no sanitation services, and those missing but presumed dead under the rubble. Today, 7/8, Israel has issued more "evacuation orders" to the al-Ahli Arab and Patient’s Friends Benevolent Society Hospitals to the general area around the Al-Mawasi refugee camp. We've witnessed Israel push Palestinians from place to place in the guise of "safety" where there is none. All those in Rafah have been pushed north again to Khan Younis and now Al-Mawasi. Over 2 million people have been under continuous forced displacement for months. The fact this has been allowed, supported, and funded is unconscionable. 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
