See the future of your city when we #StopArmingIsrael
Every year, the U.S. government writes the Israeli military a blank check for at least $3.8 billion, using your tax dollars to fund Israel’s violence against the Palestinian people.
Right now, we’re witnessing the horrific impact of that funding in real time, as Israeli occupation forces brutally assault Palestinian worshippers inside Al Aqsa mosque during Ramadan, bomb the 2 million Palestinian people living trapped under siege in Gaza, and keep constantly killing Palestinian people.
96 Palestinians have been murdered by Israeli forces or settlers in 2023 alone. That’s about one Palestinian person killed every single day.
Enough is enough. You and I know a better future is possible: a future where we refuse to fund state violence. Instead, the U.S. government could be funding the life-giving resources our communities really need, like healthcare, education, and housing.
Now, you can see a glimpse of what that future looks like. Check out USCPR’s newly updated U.S. Military Funding to Israel map.
You might remember this interactive map from years past, and now it’s updated with a new design and the most recent data. Share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (If you’re having any trouble viewing it, clear the cache on your browser.)
You can see an estimate of how much your city’s taxpayers pay in U.S. military funding to Israel through federal tax dollars. Then, you’ll see the community needs the U.S. government could be funding instead, like children’s healthcare and student debt relief. You can also download a graphic to share for your city.
This is a picture of the infinite possibilities for transforming our communities, if we demand that Congress #StopArmingIsrael and fund critical needs.
We have more than enough resources to care for all people when we reimagine the future. That begins with refusing to fund violent systems that harm our communities.
See this better future for yourself, and then share it on social media.
As our worldwide movement is growing, that future is within reach. Onward until liberation.
