Die-in to send a message to Senators Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein and Representative Doris Matsui:
When you voted to support Israel’s attacks on Gaza (H. Res 657 & S. Res. 498), you also voted for:
-The murder (to date) of over 500 Palestinians: 75% civilians including over 110 children.
-The wounding of thousands; the destruction of homes and neighborhoods; mosques; a center for the disabled; the terrorizing of tens of thousands of children.
- The dismissal of the Geneva Conventions (a document you might want to review).
- The use of U.S. tax dollars, over $8.5 million a day, to support war crimes: targeting civilians is a war crime; bombing hospitals is a war crime; genocide is a war crime.
- The violation of international law which prohibits the use of disproportional force (F-16s & drones against unsophisticated rockets).
- Israel’s ongoing siege against the 1.7 million people whom it has held hostage for 8 years with an air, sea, and land blockade.
