People are starving to death in Gaza. In fact, 80% of all people starving in the world right now are in Gaza because of the brutal and unceasing attack from Israel’s armed forces. More than 25,000 Palestinians are already dead.
It is time to massively increase food and humanitarian supplies, not deal them a death blow like the United States, United Kingdom, France, Japan, and Germany are doing by suspending financial support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) – based on allegations of connections to the Hamas attacks on October 7, by a handful of the more than 30,000 relief workers UNRWA employs in Gaza.
UNRWA has been vital to millions of Palestinian refugees displaced since the 1948 Palestine War. As of 2019, more than 5.6 million Palestinians have registered with them. Cutting them off now during the worst humanitarian crisis ever to beset Gaza is inhumane and despicable, no matter what a few misguided souls may – or may not – have done on October 7th.
We’re calling on President Biden to put your money where your mouth is: restore full-funding to UNRWA and demand a CEASEFIRE NOW! Sign the petition today to send an immediate message to President Biden!
