► Had enough while your electeds do Nothing to help stop Israel’s genocidal bombing of Gaza?  Take Action! Call Obama & Congress every day & come to protest at Federal Building on Wed. Aug 27, see below.

Tell your electeds (Boxer, Feinstein, Matsui, Bera, and Garamendi) that you are horrified they voted for resolutions supporting Israel’s genocide AND voted to give Israel more money for weapons — completely ignoring Israel’s war crimes in Gaza.
Remind them that targeting civilians, which is what Israel is doing in its bombing of Gaza, is a WAR CRIME and that  US law demands that no military aid be granted to governments that uses its weapons against civilians.  Congress is now on a 5 week recess, so call the local offices.
Consider telling them  that you won’t be donating to their campaigns until they call for an End to the Blockade on Gaza and  STOP supporting the U.S. political cover and money that enables Israel to commit war crimes and other human rights and international law violations with impunity.

► Boycott Israel’s war crimes, occupation, and other violations of human rights & international law:  Don’t buy Israeli products & ask stores not to sell them. Don’t invest in companies that profit from Israel’s abuses.

►  Click to sign and forward petitions for Palestine -  new petitions are added regularly.

► Wear t-shirts, Palestinian colors & kafeyahs to show support for Palestinian rights! Click to order t-shirts & bumper stickers.

● Donate to emergency relief for Gaza through UNRWA:  Click for online.  Checks can be written to American Friends of UNRWA and mail to SAPA, 909 12th St. #118, Sacramento, CA. 95814 – put “Gaza Fund” in the memo line.
