Tell Congress: No US Military Aid for Israel's Chemical Weapons
WRL is partnering with US Campaign to End the Occupation to call Israel and its US goverment backers to task for Israel's human rights record in its ongoing occupation of Palestinian land. Israel, the top recipient of US military aid, is responsible for a large number of human rights violations thoughout Palestine, as noted in a recent State Department report. Will you take action in support of human rights?
On a regular basis, the Israeli military uses tear gas, often made in the US, against people protesting the daily violations of Israeli apartheid in the Occupied Territories, and shoots high-velocity tear gas canisters at demonstrators at close range. This practice has killed a number of people including Mustafa Tamimi in December of last year. Tamimi's story appears via his friend on WRL's Facing Tear Gas Tumblr.
Take action now by sending a message to your Congress-people demanding an investigation into Israeli human rights abuses and US government compliance with its own laws on arms export and military aid.
