Hi staffer, I hope you've been well admist the chaos work must be like for you. The calls for a ceasefire haven't stopped, nor will they- I'm only seeing it grow & grow. The genocide of Palestinians has gone beyond the red/blue divide. Americans desperately want our government to stop this and we know that Biden & Congress have the power to make that happen. Proof of it comes from history when Reagan got Israel to stop a different bombing tirade of occupied Palestine. You are the only one left in the government I really think will take a moment to hear me. I beg that you participate in another staffer walkout. Leave and never look back. Regardless of your political affiliation, it's clear that the government isn't listening to the American people. Please use your proximity to power to amplify my voice- we must have a ceasefire immediately. As for your boss, this is my message: I ask you to - Call for an immediate ceasefire- a "humanitarian pause" is completely insufficient - Call for the immediate end of apartheid, occupation, and ethnic cleansing of Palestine - Support both Israelis and Palestinians in efforts for real and long-lasting peace, safety, freedom, and equal rights for both groups - Continue to speak out against the disturbing rise of antisemitism, and ALSO equally condemn the rise of Islamophobia tearing our country apart - Withdraw all U.S. troops and assets sent to assist Israel - Permanently end all monetary and military aid given to Israel, whether it is directly or indirectly provided - Provide substantial, ongoing humanitarian relief to all of occupied Palestine to help them rebuild, care for the sick & injured, bury the dead with dignity, and to ensure all of their basic needs are taken care of and unable to be restricted now and in the future by any government or group - Not support any legislation that directly or indirectly allows for targeting of Palestinians both in the U.S. and abroad - Protect my freedom of speech and work against all efforts of censorship whether the form is governmental control of the Internet, penalties in-person, or other means of silencing - Restore my right of free speech to criticize any government or political ideology and provide protection against targeting, discrimination, and harassment for doing so - Repeal all federal anti-BDS laws for businesses and individuals and pass legislation that voids any and all state-level anti-BDS laws - Stop the militarization of our police force by ending the cross-training done with the IOF, and all other ways this is accomplished
