Time is running out in Gaza. Israel is completely closing off and suffocating the Gaza Strip. No fuel. No water. No food. No Internet. Nowhere to escape. The healthcare system is on the verge of total collapse and the power on the verge of total blackout under constant bombings. It’s absolutely vital that our members of Congress hear from us now. Congress is planning to send more weapons and military funding to Israel for genocide, on top of a $3.8 billion/year blank check. These billions directly fuel violence: Israel’s horrific bombings in Gaza, massacring 1,400 Palestinian people and counting. TAKE ACTION: Call your members of Congress. It's extremely important to hold them accountable now.

The Israeli government is on the brink of genocide against Palestinians. This is an emergency of historic proportions. It has never been more important for Jews and all people in the US to rise up with ALL that we have — the way that many of us would have wanted others to rise up for our ancestors. The past tells us that Israeli state atrocities against Palestinians only stop once there is a sufficient mass outcry from the international community. We need to converge to bring our fullest force to D.C. right now. Join us on Wednesday, October 18 at 12pm in D.C. — exact location TBA — to tell our elected officials: Stop the war. Ceasefire now.
The global movement for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights was initiated by Palestinian civil society in 2005, and is coordinated by the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), established in 2007. BDS is a strategy that allows people of conscience to play an effective role in the Palestinian struggle for justice.

We look to the Palestinian grassroots and Palestinian-led organizations as our primary points of reference in this struggle.
Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is a network of organizers and activists, based in North America, working to build solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in their struggle for freedom. Samidoun developed out of the September-October 2011 hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, seeing a need for a dedicated network to support Palestinian prisoners. We work to raise awareness and provide resources about Palestinian political prisoners, their conditions, their demands, and their work for freedom for themselves, their fellow prisoners, and their homeland. We also work to organize campaigns to make political change and advocate for Palestinian prisoners’ rights and freedoms.
Enduring Roots: Over a Century of Resistance to the Jewish National Fund
This 40-minute documentary chronicles stories of al-Nakba survivors, interviews with their descendants about the case of refugee return, and current and growing resistance to the ongoing colonization of Palestine by the Jewish National Fund. In the name of environmentalism, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) plants trees and builds parks on Palestinian land. Over the past 113 years, the strategies of the JNF to acquire land in historic Palestine have changed, but its goals remain the same. This film was produced by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN).
