Meeting with Senators Warren and Markey’s Staff: Delivering a Petition Standing Up for Human Rights Organizations

Tue May 10 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Join Massachusetts residents and organizations Tuesday, May 10th in the plaza in front of Senators Warren’s and Markey’s Offices at the JFK Federal Building, 15 New Sudbury St, to present a petition signed by over 850 MA residents and organizations urging them to pressure US and Israeli leaders to decriminalize defenders of Palestinianprisoners, farmers, women, and children.

The petition acknowledges and protests the designation of 6 Palestinian human rights organizations as “terrorists” by the Israeli government. That anti-democratic action by a “democratic” government, is an attempt to defund and shut down these organizations and imprison the directors for 25 years. Palestinians rely on these organizations to report Israeli government crimes against them. We rely upon them to know how the Israeli government is using the weapons we buy them.

Read the letter here, and if you haven’t already, sign your name and send a message to our President, Secretary of State, Senators and Representatives that we must not ignore this gross destruction of basic democratic rights. Our government must pressure the Israeli government to allow Palestinians to report the brutal criminal actions committed by the Israeli government.

Sponsored by: Massachusetts Peace Action, Jewish Voice for Peace Boston, Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine, and Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East
