Resistbot Petition: Stop Funding Genocide - Ceasefire NOW

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

Stop Funding Genocide - Ceasefire NOW

336 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

On Friday March 1, 2024, President Biden says he plans to airdrop aid to Palestinians while also urging the House to pass $14 billion more funds in aid to Israel. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told Congress that the U.S. has supplied Israel with precision guided munitions since Israel started its attacks on Palestine. U.S. made weapons are killing entire families in Gaza. Our tax dollars are directly funding this genocide. Israel has killed over 30,000 Palestinians since October 7, 2023 and continues to use starvation as a weapon and kill civilians waiting for aid. The public recognizes that you don’t care about Palestinians or their humanity if you airdrop aid while you continue to supply genocide. I support a ceasefire, along with 69 Congressmembers (as of Feb 20). The majority of Americans - including 77% of Democrats and 56% of Republicans - support a permanent ceasefire (Data for Progress, February 2024 report). We are paying attention to representatives who publicly call for a permanent ceasefire, which will shape the 2024 elections. I want you to cosponsor HR 786 by Rep Bush. I am demanding you to take immediate steps to deescalate violence in Gaza and Israel by calling for 1) a total and permanent ceasefire, 2) humanitarian aid allowed to enter Gaza, 3) an end to Israel's siege on Gaza, 4) the release of all Palestinian and Israeli hostages, 5) no more weapons or funding to the Israeli military, 6) the reinstatement of UNRWA funding. A permanent ceasefire is an absolutely critical step to ensuring everlasting liberation and peace. Never again means never again for anyone. Palestinians deserve to live with freedom and safety which means first stopping this genocide and then ensuring liberation from occupation and apartheid. The liberation and safety of Palestinians, Israelis, Jewish people, and Muslim people are intertwined. There can only be true safety when we are all free from oppression. The ICJ ruled that Israel should do everything in its power to prevent genocide. South Africa is also suing President Biden for participating in this genocide. You must take action now and end all U.S. support in Israel's enactment of this genocide.
