Stop the Bombs! Ceasefire Now!

Over 18,000 Palestinians have been killed, more than 10,000 of whom were infants or children. Disease, hunger, and thirst are spreading rapidly. Two million Palestinians have been displaced and thousands imprisoned by the Israeli state. This horror has unfolded with the full support of the US government. Our out-of-touch representatives, instead of siding with their constituents are siding with AIPAC, a racist right-wing lobby group. They are underwriting the Israeli government as it ignores so many—the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions and a growing number of US labor organizations; human rights organizations like Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch; protesters and people of conscience, including many of the the families of the hostages; 80% of Democratic voters—who have cried out for a ceasefire as the only means to save lives.
