Israel’s genocidal invasion of Gaza has continued for over six months, with full backing from the Biden administration, and is now threatening to spiral into a wider regional conflict. Why does the US government care so little for Palestinian lives, what strategy lies behind its support for Israel, and what can we do in this country to alter the balance of forces, end the carnage, and support justice for Palestine? Come to this meeting, organized by the Tempest Collective in Madison, to discuss these issues.
