in WAWOG list, but i couldn't find statements: Topos, The Word is Change

for ppl (not orgs): djs against apartheid • musicians for palestine • artists against apartheid

PACBI *is* [a low bar!]
the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) is non-violent direct action asking that academic & cultural institutions, orgs, groups...
–– refuse the normalization of Israeli violence against Palestinians
–– join a global cultural front pressuring Israel to end its genocide & apartheid of Palestinian people & the occupation of Palestinian land
–– refrain from participation in academic / cultural events & projects sponsored by the Israeli government, Israel lobby groups, & complicit Israeli institutions
–– make a public commitment to refuse material support from the state of Israel & reject projects that normalize Israel’s forced dispossession of Palestinians

to learn more, here's a cheatsheet + sample PACBI statement u can copy / paste !

[ CONTACT ]

email congress // easy auto-tool!

email white house staff // ask them to resign!

email white house // ...keep radicalizing biden interns!!!! my fall '23 biden script included "I wish you grace in the face of your certain defeat, & enough years of health to try to make amends for your devastating moral failure." but let's be real: no one has that many years!! now i just crib adalah's line, short & [bitter]sweet: "Biden's legacy is genocide. Let it not be ours."

actual phone calls (u can do it!!! 9am-5pm, M-F!!!)

1. look up yr reps

2. see if they've called for ceasefire

3v1. call via USCPR tool or JVP tool: a) fill in info, b) click "call me" & get connected to first rep's office, c) read short call script, d) hit * [star] to be connected to next call aaaand repeat! whenever i try this i instinctively hang up after 1st call instead of hitting [*] lol oops, which is why i...

district 30's Robert Holden (212-788-7381; literally called anti-zionist protests "terrorism")
 queens boro prez Donovan J. Richards, Jr. (718-286-3000; ousted cec mem for pro-palestine tweets)

• stuff u can say

USPCR: "My name is [YOUR FIRST & LAST NAME], and I'm a constituent of [REP OR SENATOR]. I'm calling about Palestine & Israel. [REP OR SENATOR X] must [call] for 1) a total & permanent ceasefire, 2) humanitarian aid allowed to enter Gaza, including reinstating funding to UNRWA, 3) an end to Israel's siege on Gaza, & 4) no more weapons or funding to the Israeli military. I support a permanent ceasefire, along with 66 Congressmembers & 61% of American voters. I'm urgently asking [REP/SENATOR X] to call for a permanent ceasefire."

JVP: "Israel's genocide against Palestinians has become one of the deadliest & most destructive military campaigns in recent history. [Democrats] must call on the Biden administration to demand an immediate lasting ceasefire, & to stop sending weapons to the Israeli military. This is the only way to stop Israel's mass assaults, war crimes, & genocide against Palestinians in Gaza ... ensure the release of hostages ... rush desperately needed humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza who are being starved by Israeli siege ... address the root causes of everything happening — 75 years of Israeli military occupation and apartheid — & to end U.S. complicity in this systemic oppression."

expect answering machines –– but if you reach a Real Person, remember they're prolly a lowly staffer, likely a young person who feels gross representing their sellout employer. be adamant (& depending on the office, feel free to suggest they resign lol), but remember you're not speaking directly to a person in power; save the volume for yelling at those f*ckers outside their offices & homes & in the street!
