Fund Human Needs, Not the Israeli Military

On the UN-declared International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People about 50 folks marched in Boston to deliver letters to staff of Senators Markey and Warren. The request: condition the $3.8 billion the U.S. gives Israeli annually (with more promised for the Iron Dome) on upholding Palestinian human rights. Redirect much of this money— $138 million annually from Massachusetts residents—to desperately needed housing, education, daycare, healthcare, climate change resiliency and much more right here in Massachusetts.
