Find a Protest: Stop the Gaza Genocide

Rise Up With Palestine shireen art

Over 2 million Palestinian people trapped in Gaza are living through genocide in real time, as Israel bombs, starves, and displaces them. Take action now to demand an IMMEDIATE CEASEFIRE!

There are no “both sides” in Israel’s 75+ years of ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and colonialism. The Israeli regime, with one of the most advanced militaries in the world funded by the U.S. government by the billions, has always been the colonizer and aggressor attacking and expelling Indigenous Palestinian people. There are no “both sides” when Israel has trapped more than 2 million Palestinian people (mostly refugees) in an open-air cage in Gaza in unlivable conditions for 17 years, repeatedly bombing them in horrific massacres year after year.

It’s vital to address the root of the problem and end Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

Take action now in solidarity with the Palestinian people, to fight for a liberated future for all, in a world without racism and oppression.

3. Tell Congress: CEASEFIRE NOW!

From Gaza to Jenin, we have witnessed Israel’s brutal massacres of Palestinian people again and again. We have watched our U.S. politicians and media outlets ignore, minimize, and sometimes even sanction Israel’s killings, dehumanizing Palestinian people.

Stop the killing! These massacres are funded into existence by our U.S. tax dollars, with a blank check for $3.8+ billion to the Israeli military every year. Palestinian people in Gaza are urgently calling for a CEASEFIRE NOW.

CALL: Call Congress to demand an immediate ceasefire.

EMAIL: Tell Congress to stop the genocide.

Call, email, call again, and keep going. Text all your friends and tell them to take action too. Channel your rage into holding your elected officials accountable. Our members of Congress are feeling the rising pressure right now. Your impact is real.

4. Look Up: How Much of Your Community’s Tax Dollars Fund Israel’s Violence?

Type your city or state to begin.

Every year, the U.S. government writes Israel a blank check for at least $3.8 billion. With your federal U.S. tax dollars, the Israeli military is bombing Palestinian people in Gaza and stealing native Palestinian land.

How much do people in your city pay through federal tax dollars? What could be funded instead? Find out above on our interactive U.S. Military Funding to Israel map, and demand Congress #StopArmingIsrael.
