Many people have longed for Palestinians to put together a truly massive nonviolent march in the spirit of Gandhi. They're now trying to do this in Gaza – 30,000 Palestinian men, women, and children gathered in five tent cities and began a nonviolent "Great March of Return" toward the fence that cages them in.
Israel responded by deploying thousands of soldiers, including 100 snipers, and issuing a "shoot to kill" order. Now Israel has done just that, so far killing at least 24 and injuring over a thousand, including at least 200 children (a deaf child was shot in the head.) Keep up with the latest news here.
It is our job to support their rights, their courage, and their safety against Israeli violence.
Tell your Congressional representatives, who voted to give Israel $10 million per day, to demand that Israel stop this massacre immediately!
(Even if their office is currently closed, they will still get your message and register your demand!)
