US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, December 6, 2019
Today Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib took a principled stand against H. Res. 326, a resolution that will only help perpetuate the unjust status quo in Palestine/Israel and provide cover for Israel’s ongoing violations of Palestinian rights.
Thank Rep. Tlaib for consistently speaking out for Palestinian rights! We agree that bolder action is needed, and that a progressive US policy on Palestine/Israel should align with the values of justice and freedom for all. She was joined by Reps. Omar, Pressley, and Ocasio-Cortez in voting no, and Reps. McCollum and Garcia voting ‘present’ as a small way to choose the side of justice.
I spoke today as the proud granddaughter of a strong, loving Palestinian woman in opposition to #HRes326. We must take bolder actions to ensure human rights are upheld in Israel and that Palestinians and Black Israelis are treated with the equality every human being deserves. pic.twitter.com/G3IlRcoVM6
