We are U.S. voters and taxpayers, teachers, writers, ministers, lawyers, and students who call for genuine security through demilitarization and the creation of sustainable communities. We have watched with horror and anger as the Israeli attacks on Gaza have killed over 1,400 Palestinians (and rising), as well as injuring and displacing thousands more. There is no safe place: even families in United Nations’ designated shelters have fallen victim to Israeli shelling. As these atrocities unfold, we stand in solidarity with Palestinian people in Gaza, throughout the Occupied Territory and in the diaspora, and with allies all over the world who are calling for peace in the region. We denounce this attempted genocide: the intentional killing of Palestinian people as Israeli troops have attacked homes, playgrounds, schools, hospitals, and UN premises, all in violation of international law.
