Our Mission

Israel has been maintaining a military occupation of the Palestinian territories for years. The occupation denies basic human rights, freedom, and dignity to millions of Palestinians. Since 2007, Israel, along with Egypt, has placed the Gaza Strip under a medieval siege.

The siege of Gaza and the occupation of Palestinians territories is done with the financial and diplomatic support of the United States. U.S. taxpayers subsidize the Israeli occupation with over $10 million per day, or nearly $4 billion per year. Our goal is to change U.S. policy to end U.S. financial and political support to the Israeli occupation and apartheid of the Palestinian people.

Is Documenting Human Rights Violations Terrorism? Please sign and share this petition about the Palestinian 6

On October 22, 2021, the Israeli government designated six eminent Palestinian human rights/civil society organizations as “terrorists”, putting them at risk of being shut down and the staff at risk of imprisonment. Democratic governments don’t shut down human rights and civil liberties groups and imprison their staff.

Please sign this petition to ask President Biden and Secretary Blinken to condemn this action and pressure the Israeli government to revoke it. (To sign as an organization please check the box under “Contact Information.”)
