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

Aaron Bushnell, Human Rights Orgs, and the ICJ Know This Is a Genocide

Both Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch released statements making it clear that Israel is not following the ICJ's ruling for provisional measures to prevent genocide, and is, in fact, actively making the humanitarian apocalypse in Gaza worse. The falsehood that the ICJ ruled Israel isn't committing a genocide is a disgusting lie I'm tired of hearing parroted from my government. The case hasn't reached that stage and likely won't for some time. The provisional measures ruled, however, were done because the ICJ has ruled Israel could plausibly be committing a genocide. Aaron Bushnell self-immolated because this is a genocide. The unidentified person back in December self-immolated because this is a genocide. The most extreme form of protest has been done twice now to try and make you listen. What more is it going to take? Why won't you do something? We all know you can make Israel stop by not vetoing ceasefire resolutions in the UN Security Council, imposing sanctions, ceasing all military and financial aid - you have all of these options within your power and you still do nothing. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire - Call for the immediate end of Israel's occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Hold Israel accountable for their violations of the Genocide Convention and all other international laws by any means necessary - 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 - 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
