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. Menendez needs to hear loud and clear that you demand he withdraw support for the oppressive bill.
Here’s how to make him listen:
- Click to support the Thunderclap campaign with Facebook and Twitter
- Share the Thunderclap on your social media
- Forward this ask to your family and friends in New Jersey
You probably know that Sen. Menendez is among the Democrats most reluctant to embrace Palestinian human rights. He has publicly praised Nelson Mandela and César Chávez for their nonviolent resistance work, but supports this bill to criminalize our peaceful protest of Israel’s human rights violation towards Palestinians. By raising our voices together on social media, we call attention to his hypocrisy, sending a loud message to Menendez – and his fellow Democrats – that you cannot be progressive except Palestine.
It takes 100 signatories for the Thunderclap campaign to go public and Sen. Menendez 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 in New Jersey!
Thank you for standing up for boycott, divestment, and sanctions and Palestinian rights! Together, we will make Congress hear us.
