CHEMICAL WEAPONS USED ON AMERICANS - CEASEFIRE NOW

1,209 so far! Help us get to 2,000 signers!

On 1/22/24 two former Israeli soldiers attacked a peaceful protest advocating for a ceasefire in Gaza on Columbia University's campus with an illegal chemical weapon. Multiple students have had to seek medical treatment. The anti-Arab and Islamophobic rhetoric of our government has emboldened terrorist extremists actions against not just Palestinians abroad or in Palestinians in America, but any American who supports Palestinians. I am beyond disgusted, and horrified at your lack of attention to or care for what is happening to Palestinians and those advocating for their human rights. The two terrorists have yet to be apprehended. I am terrified of the 10,000+ dual citizens who were drafted by Israel to fight in their genocidal ethnic cleansing campaign coming back to America. What repercussions will those who physically participated in this genocide face? How can we feel safe in our communities knowing that they will be allowed to return to America after their participation in war crimes? 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 - 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 - Stop the militarization of our police by ending all cross-training done with the Israeli military, ceasing the construction of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, and all other ways this is accomplished - Pass legislation that prohibits any governmental action that would target any ethnic, religious, or other minority group (including Palestinians), either in the U.S. or abroad, by restricting humanitarian or financial aid, infringing on their human rights, or other actions that would otherwise bring harm or cause undue burdens on said groups
