Tell the Democratic Party: Support Palestinian Rights!

This is outrageous! On June 24, the Democratic National Convention’s (DNC) platform drafting committee voted against an amendment calling on Israel to end its military occupation of Palestinian land and its illegal settlements.

That’s right. The DNC voted against the policy goals of both the Obama AND Bush administrations.

Watch our two-minute video on the DNC’s appalling vote not to recognize Palestinians’ right to freedom from Israeli occupation.

Help us make this go viral by sharing the video and petition on Facebook and Twitter.

Fortunately, there’s still time to overturn this vote. The DNC’s full platform committee will be meeting in Orlando on Friday and Saturday and they’ll have an opportunity to vote again on this language.

Just as we did for the June 24th meeting in St. Louis, we’ll be mobilizing for this meeting in Orlando to show the Democratic Party how much support exists for Palestinian rights.

If you’d like to join us in Orlando, then please fill out this form and we’ll be in touch.

And later this month, at both the RNC in Cleveland and the DNC in Philadelphia, we will be engaging in nonpartisan, educational work to ensure that support for Palestinian rights is a central part of our country’s political agenda.

We will be organizing educational events in both Philadelphia and Cleveland to stimulate this conversation. And we are also working with local groups in both cities to organize Palestine solidarity contingents at convention protests.

This is an incredible opportunity to put Palestine in the spotlight during a crucial election year and we need your help in order to do that.

Donate $50 or more today and we’ll send you this t-shirt (along with these signs and stickers) below, or donate any amount and we’ll send you the signs and stickers.
