Humanity Must Prevail
We are horrified by the violence that has been perpetrated against civilians in Gaza, Israel, and the occupied West Bank. The Oakland Institute strongly condemns the killings of civilians, indiscriminate bombings and cuts to vital services that Israel is now carrying out in Gaza in violation of international law.
Instead of fueling the flames through increased military support, the US government must take immediate steps to de-escalate the conflict and stop the violence. Life-saving humanitarian aid must be immediately allowed to enter Gaza, ensuring that people have safe access to food, water, and healthcare.
Below are several ways to take action and call on your representatives to stop the bloodshed and work towards peace and justice.
