End the Evictions in Occupied East Jerusalem
We want our political leaders to: 1. demand Israel to halt the forced displacement of families in Sheikh Jarrah and across occupied Palestinian. 2. investigate whether U.S.-made weapons and equipment were used in Israel’s demolitions of Palestinian homes and property in violation of the Arms Export Control Act of 1976. 3. support the Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act (HR 2590) to prohibit the use of U.S. funds to support the military detention of children, the demolition of Palestinian homes and the further annexation of Palestinian territory.
Why is this important?
Palestinian people have the right to live in peace and with dignity. They have the right to control their land and natural resources. They have the inalienable right to be free. We, everyone committed to justice, must commit ourselves to freedom for all: "Freedom is indivisible...." June Jordan
