TIME SENSITIVE: Call your Senators Today to Vote for Sanders Resolution


Senator Bernie Sanders has called the Israeli bombardment of Gaza a “mass atrocity . . . being done with bombs and equipment produced and provided by the United States and heavily subsidized by American taxpayers.” 

The Senator recently introduced S. Res. 504 mandating the Biden Administration to provide information “on Israel’s human rights practices pursuant to section 502B(c) of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.” If after thirty days, it is clear  Israel is in violation of international law, military assistance must be cut off.

Text of S.Res. 504


This is a “privileged” resolution, for which the sponsor can require an immediate vote. Senator Sanders has indicated he will be asking for the vote this week. 

Your voice is essential. Please call your Senators today and urge them to vote for Resolution 504.  Urge them as well to advocate  a permanent ceasefire.
