Standout at Representative Stephen Lynch’s Office: Tell Representative Lynch to stand up for human rights for all, including Palestinians.

Thu May 19 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Join Activists @ 3:30 pm on Thursday, May 19th at Representative Lynch’s Office, 1245 Hancock, Quincy. 

Do you know Israel has designated 6 Palestinian human rights organizations as ‘terrorists’ with no evidence? Continued documentation of Israeli violations of international law has already been curtailed as a result.  This designation has global implications for all human rights organizations. We can’t allow human rights organizations to be shut down at the whim of heads of state.

Activists will gather to deliver a petition to Rep. Lynch. This petition, signed by over 3,000 individuals and organizations, demands Secretary Blinken and President Biden to condem the designation on 6 Palestinian NGOs by Israel. Activists will urge Representative Lynch to pressure the Biden Administration to ask Israel to reverse this action.

The designation on these Palestinian NGOs is an anti-democratic action by a “democratic” government which exposes these organizations to the risk of being shut down and the staff to imprisonment. Palestinians rely on these NGOs for support when the Israeli government commits a crime against them. We stand up and say NO to this and YES to ALL human rights. We ask Representative Lynch to do the same.

There is still time, so if you haven’t yet, please sign this petition!

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
