Palestine Solidarity Toolkit

DSA’s International Committee stands in unwavering solidarity with the Palestinian people in their 75 year struggle for liberation from Israel’s settler colonial occupation, ethnic cleansing, and ongoing genocide. Gaza is now under a complete siege, depriving more than two million people, half of whom are children, of food, water, medicine, and electricity while under continuous and barbaric bombing. We call for immediate de-escalation, an end to U.S. military aid to Israel, and justice for the Palestinian people. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!

Take action for Palestine

  1. Reach out to Palestinian solidarity organizations in your location, rally members to attend a local protest and bring your friends.
  2. Call and email your Congressional Representatives and demand:
    • Immediate de-escalation of Israel’s genocidal bombardment.
      • Call for an immediate ceasefire.
      • Protection of civilians and the establishment of safe zones in the Gaza Strip.
    • Entry of Humanitarian assistance.
      • Safe passage of humanitarian aid and medical supplies from Egypt through the Rafah crossing. This must be safeguarded by the international community. 
      • Protection of safe, secure, and timely delivery of humanitarian assistance to the affected population inside the Gaza Strip.
      • Resuming access to water and electricity as well as fuel for medical facilities in the Gaza Strip.
    • No arms for Israel.
    • Stop the violence by addressing the injustice at its roots: Israel’s occupation, apartheid, & ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
