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

Fri May 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Join Activists @ 3:00 pm on Friday, May 13th at Representative Auchincloss’s Office, 29 Crafts St. Newton. 

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. Auchincloss. This petition, signed by over 850 individuals and organizations, demands Secretary Blinken and President Biden to condem the designation on 6 Palestinian NGOs by Israel. Activists will urge Representative Auchincloss 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 Achincloss to do the same.

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