Tell Congress: Boycott Bibi’s Visit to Congress!

The people of Gaza have been living a nightmare since October. Over 40,000 have been murdered, including over 15,000 children, no one has safe access to food, water, shelter, or healthcare, and everyone lives under the threat of bombs and live ammunition every moment of every day. 

As if billions of US dollars arming Israel isn’t enough, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the top war criminal responsible for this genocide, is set to address the US Congress in person on July 24. This is beyond unacceptable, this is a mask-off endorsement of genocide. 

Netanyahu should be arrested upon entry into the US in compliance with the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrants, not welcomed with open arms. We must demand Congress boycott this genocide pep-rally and take every measure to bring Netanyahu to justice! Sign the petition below and we’ll deliver it right to Congress’s front door!

We, the undersigned, vehemently oppose your attendance of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress on July 24. We demand you not only boycott his visit, but take every measure necessary to ensure his arrest upon arrival into the US in compliance with the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrants. 

Netanyahu is the face of Israel’s genocide campaign in Gaza that continues to this day. Netanyahu is responsible for the murder of over 40,000 Palestinians since October of last year, including over 15,000 children. Netanyahu’s assault includes blocking the entire population of Gaza from safe access to food, water, healthcare, and shelter. He’s bombed children sleeping in their homes, children eating their last meals. Netanyahu authorized the complete destruction of hospitals, schools, and UN buildings. He purposely murdered American humanitarian aid and healthcare workers in Gaza. He is a war criminal and his address in Congress is a mask-off endorsement of his crimes against humanity. 

Even before October, Netanyahu had Gaza under a total air, land, and sea blockade, doing his best to make the lives of Gazans miserable. Beyond Gaza, Netanyahu allows for the murder and kidnapping of Palestinians in the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the whole of Palestine that was stolen in 1948. Netanyahu is responsible for unimaginable war crimes, and it is in the best interest of the US to hold him accountable. 

The American people have made it absolutely crystal clear that we do not support Israel’s genocide campaign in Gaza or US support for it, and this petition is another assertion of that fact. We demand you boycott Netanyahu’s visit to Congress and arrest the war criminal! Free Palestine!
