USCPR February eNews Update
Below is an update on some of the most recent organizing efforts and advocacy campaigns that your support is allowing USCPR to undertake.We’re grateful for your solidarity and steadfast support. As always, let us know if you have questions or would like to hear more.
As Israel continues to ethnically cleanse Palestinian people from Al-Naqab, Beita, Sheikh Jarrah, and all around Palestine, the Palestinian people remain steadfast in their fight for freedom.
During the last weekend in January, the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights answered Palestinian calls for freedom as we amplified actions all over the world, from Mexico City, Mexico to Osaka, Japan, in solidarity with the Palestinian people. See the actions that happened, and keep protesting until Palestine is free.
2021 was a year that brought opportunities to engage with Congress for Palestinian liberation while moving toward accountability for U.S. complicity in Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people. Swipe through these slides to learn more about how far we’ve come—and how we’re still keeping the pressure on Congress.
During a time when we should be demanding accountability ASAP to stop Israel’s crimes, Congress is promoting Trump-era weapons deals, which give authoritarian regimes weapons in exchange for political support for Israeli violence against the Palestinian people. Tell your members of Congress to vote NO on the Normalizing Israeli Ethnic Cleansing Act.
To learn even more about H. R. 2748, see our memo. This lays out the reasons why USCPR strongly urges members of Congress not to cosponsor or vote for H. R. 2748 / S. 1061, the Israel Relations Normalization Act of 2021, or as we call it, the Normalizing Israeli Ethnic Cleansing Act. This bill encourages the expansion of the U.S.-brokered Abraham Accords, deeply transactional Trump era deals which sideline the voices and demands of the Palestinian people, and allow de facto annexation to continue unabated.
Stay in the loop and be the first to know about new resources, ways to get involved, take action, and stand up for Palestinian rights.
