The USFWC powers movements for racial justice and economic democracy. We recognize the intersectionality of this work and the pursuit of liberation and justice for all oppressed people. We believe that a different world is possible, and that justice, dignity, solidarity, and the sanctity of human life should be central to our society, democracies, and economies. With this in mind, we have signed onto the Rising Majority’s call to stand with Palestine to demand an end to the occupation and genocide led by the Israeli apartheid state and funded by the United States Government.
The Rising Majority’s call to action:
Rising Majority calls on people of conscience and all progressive movements to stand with Palestine in this critical moment and demand an end to the occupation and genocide led by the Israeli apartheid state and funded by the United States Government. We call for a Ceasefire Now and for the U.S. government to Stop the Genocide of Gaza.
We join the thousands who have been in the streets across the world to express solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza who are facing the worst bombardment in their history. We are outraged by this violence and condemn the Israeli apartheid state that is currently doubling down on collective punishment of the Palestinians and tightening its nearly 17-year siege of Gaza. This includes the prevention of any electricity, food, water and fuel to enter Gaza. And over the past few days, in addition to physical violence and attacks, we have witnessed the racist denigration of Palestinians as “barbaric” and “human animals” (in the words of Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant). We will continue to strengthen our efforts for a Free Palestine and the pursuit of liberation, justice, and freedom for all oppressed people everywhere.
