Demand Senator Tammy Duckworth Call for a Permanent Ceasefire!

 In just a matter of weeks, the movement for Palestine has taken the number of Members of Congress calling for a ceasefire from zero to almost fifty! There is one critical Senator that needs to call for a ceasefire- and we need your help to put the pressure on her. Senator Tammy Duckworth is on the Senate Armed Services Committee and holds a lot of sway in Congress. She represents the largest population of Palestinians in the United States, and her counterpart Senator Dick Durbin has already joined the call for a ceasefire. People have been putting pressure on her in Illinois– and now we all have to! Sign this petition to demand Senator Tammy Duckworth call for a ceasefire and we’ll hand deliver the petitions to her in Chicago!

Dear Senator Duckworth,

The effects of Israel's attack on Gaza have been devastating. Since the start of the recent attack, over 15,000 Palestinians have been murdered by Israel, including over 6,000 children, and 1.5 million have been displaced in Gaza. According to the World Health Organization, more people could die from disease than from bombing in Gaza.  

During the temporary ceasefire, Israeli soldiers still shot at Gazans who were attempting to return to their homes. The military also carried out deadly raids in the West Bank, and tear gassed and opened fire on Palestinians in Betunia who were waiting to greet political prisoners who were being released in exchange for Israeli captives. 

Even in a ceasefire, Palestinians are subjected to deadly violence, imprisonment, and occupation by Israel. A temporary ceasefire is not enough. As your constituents, we demand you call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza!

Almost 50 members of Congress are calling for a ceasefire, including your counterpart Dick Durbin. It’s time you join him! You represent the largest Palestinian population in the US, and we know they have been asking you directly to call for a permanent ceasefire. We know you have been ignoring their demands. It’s not too late to be on the right side of history and call for a ceasefire!

Sincerely,
