Advocates for Palestine demand end of all US military funding to Israeli occupation

BOSTON, Sept. 24 (YPA) – A group of advocates for Palestine gathered  together in downtown Boston to deliver a letter in support of Palestinians to the offices of Massachusetts’ Senators.

In the letter, they demanded the end of all US military funding to Israel and that an investigation be held regarding how US arms and funding may have influenced the “repression and displacement” of Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The letter also advocated for a bill introduced to the House which calls for defending the rights of Palestinian children and families living under Israeli occupation be moved through to the Senate.

Amassing over 1,200 signatures from over 30 advocacy and community organizations in the state, the letter was read aloud before being handed to members of the offices for Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren.
