Ask your rep to support Barbara Lee's legislation to cut the Pentagon budget!

Ask your representative in the House to support Barbara Lee’s historic House Resolution to redirect $350 billion in military spending to social programs that actually make us safe! 

The legislation calls on Congress to “support moves to reduce the priority given to war in our foreign policy and our current war-based national economy by using significant cuts, up to $350,000,000,000 as detailed above, from current budget plans, while using the funds to increase our diplomatic capacity and for domestic programs that will keep our Nation and our people safer.”

Representatives Schakowsky (IL-9), Huffman (CA-2), Omar (MN-5) DeSaulnier (CA-11) have already co-sponsored this important legislation. If you don’t see your representative above, make sure you reach out to them asking them to co-sponsor this legislation! Use our tool below to email them instantly.

    Palestine Lament (Hava Eicha = ”Let’s Lament” sung to Hava Nagila but slow)

    E Settler Zionists
    E7 Rip off Palestine,
    Am For land so fine,
    E Dm E
    Steal what they want.
    E Palestine fights subju-
    E7 gation like Warsaw
    Am Ghetto, where
    E Dm E
    Jews did the same.
    E Jews were persecuted
    Dm By Nazis executed.
    Unfair that Palestine
    E Pays for German crime.
    E BDS may stop it
    Dm And their bloody profit
    B-Boycott, D-divest
    E Sanctions are best.
    Am Because, because the Jewish state chose to
    Con-stant-ly bulldoze them
    Cru-el-ly enclose them
    E Bomb them to dispose them
    This is done by the Chosen.

    Scattered too
    like the Jew,
    E7 E Am
    Palestine diaspora.

    E Ethnic removal
    E7 tortures Palestine,
    Am for land so fine,
    E Dm E
    breaking UN law.
    E Palestine fights subju-
    E7 gation like Warsaw
    Am Ghetto, where
    E Dm E
    Jews did the same.
    E Jews were persecuted
    Dm By Nazis executed.
    Unfair that Palestine
    E Pays for German crime.
    E BDS may stop it
    Dm And their bloody profit
    B-Boycott, D-divest
    E Sanctions are best.
    Am Now, settlers for Apartheid
    Con-stant-ly bulldoze them
    Cru-el-ly enclose them
    E Bomb them to dispose them
    This is done by the Chosen.

    Genocide!
    Millions died.*
    E7 E Am
    Catastrophe NAKBA.*

    My Rep. Is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi so I changed the request from co-sponser to bring to the floor as well as the appropriate title.

    We are withdrawing from Afghanistan and Iraq. Plow the money saved back into the infrastructure needs of our country, the hard and the soft infrastructure, as well.
