The only thing you need for this action is a social media account. With just two clicks, add your social media clout to the fight against the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S.720).

The draconian bill is still here, threatening your right to boycott, trying to silence your support for Palestinian rights, and infringing on the First Amendment. When Congress goes back in session on September 5th, Sen. Blumenthal needs to hear loud and clear that you demand he withdraw support for the oppressive bill.

Here’s how to make him listen:

  1. Click to support the Thunderclap campaign with Facebook and Twitter
  2. Share the Thunderclap on your social media
  3. Forward this ask to your family and friends in Connecticut

So far, Sen. Blumenthal has responded to the flood of constituent emails with a blatant refusal to acknowledge the threat that this bill poses to our First Amendment right to boycott. He says he “heard the ACLU’s concerns with the legislation,” but didn’t take them seriously enough to drop support of the bill. Raise your voice to make sure he starts listening to you, his constituent, instead of heeding AIPAC’s take on a bill that we know was designed to and will criminalize your right to BDS.

It takes 100 signatories for the Thunderclap campaign to go public and Sen. Blumenthal to see it, so make sure you sign up with all of your social media accounts, and share with your family and friends who are Connecticut residents!

Thank you for standing up for boycott, divestment, and sanctions and Palestinian rights! Together, we will make Congress hear us.

Sincerely,

LEAH MUSKIN-PIERRET
