We will assemble at the Israeli Consulate office where we will declare the government of Israel war criminals for their disproportionate response to the Hamas attacks.

We will demand that Israel initiate a ceasefire, increase access to Gaza for humanitarian supplies to reach the people of Palestine, cease allowing settlements in the occupied territories and begin a “roll-back” of illegal settlements.

We will demand Israel begin good faith negotiations with the Palestinian people for an end to the occupation and establishment of a free Palestinian state.

THEN

We will then march over to Senator Casey’s office and call on Senator Casey to:

Support and vote for the Van Hollen Amendment to Biden’s supplemental request to Israel and Ukraine holding countries that get US weapons to humanitarian rights. (Including Israel, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia etc.)

Support and vote for Senator Sanders’ bill using section 502B(c) of the Foreign Assistance Act calling for an administration report on Israel’s use of US weapons, which could trigger a vote to STOP arms transfers to Israel until they comply with US humanitarian law.
Support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This would, of course, include Israel’s nuclear weapons.
