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


2,881 so far! Help us get to 3,000 signers!

As of 4/20, approximately 34,000 - 41,500 Palestinians have been murdered by Israel since 10/7 in the occupied Gaza strip. Unfortunately even the highest credible estimate is likely to be low - the conditions are so extreme it's been nearly impossible for the community to identify and count the bodies. These estimates do not include those who have been starved to death or whose deaths are directly attributable to the total destruction of the healthcare, waste management, sanitation, and water systems. Meanwhile, you just gave Israel $26 billion more of my tax dollars. I am disgusted with how much of American's hard earned money you've been giving and continue to give a genocidal apartheid state. That money could be used for so many other things that would actually help us, but instead, you want to continue to fund genocide. 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
