With the U.S. government's full backing, Israel is carrying out an unprecedented massacre in Gaza. Thousands of Palestinians are being killed with bombs, bullets and missiles paid for by U.S. tax dollars. This is the latest bloody chapter in the colonial project of Israel, founded with the objective of dispossessing Palestinians from their land.
Now is the time to stand with the besieged people of Palestine! Gaza is being bombed by the hour. Its people are denied food, water and electricity by Israel. Tens of thousands more people are likely to die. We must ACT! People are in the streets every day in their local cities and towns. Now we must UNITE! Join thousands of people from every corner of the United States, who are converging for a truly massive National March on Washington D.C. on Saturday, November 4.
As our fellow human beings in Gaza are being bombed and further expelled from their land, we have an important responsibility to them. The US government is by far the LARGEST military and diplomatic supporter of Israel. We need every person available to come to Washington, DC and make a clear stance that the rest of the world stands with the people of Gaza and the rest of Palestine. We have already had wins in Congress, with Representatives Jayapal, Lee and Casper signing onto Representative Bush’ Ceasefire Now Resolution after our visits, now we must take to the streets demanding an END to US Aid to Israel and an END to the Siege in Gaza.
Once you RSVP, we will follow up to ensure you are supported and have everything you need. Make sure to wear your PINK and a keffiyeh if you have one! Invite friends and family — there is strength in our numbers!
If you can’t make it, you can donate to our emergency fund for Palestine which will go towards helping people on the ground in Gaza.
And if you're looking for greater context and more resources, feel free to watch our Oct 17 Capitol Calling Party: Gaza! where we heard from special guests and experts calling for a halt to US weapons for Israel’s murderous ethnic cleansing in Gaza, as well as support for an immediate ceasefire and establishment of humanitarian corridors — an end to all the killing and occupation of Palestine.
The time is now to show our unwavering support towards our Palestinian community members. Do your part, in any way you can, to show your solidarity. Join us in DC on November 4, donate to our emergency aid, learn more about False Media Narratives on Palestine and take action!
Onward towards peace and justice,
Ann, Danaka, Cale, Farida, Grace, Jasmine, Jodie, Marcy, Medea, Melissa, Michelle, Nancy, Nour, Nuvpreet, Paki, Terry, Tian, Tim, and Ysa
