U.S. has a duty to help end conflict

Success - Article sent! close

I hope my members of Congress will support and work for a lasting cease fire that includes lifting the Israeli blockade of Gaza. The U.S. has a particular responsibility to help end the killing since U.S. weapons are fueling this conflict. The International Committee of the Red Cross has called the blockade collective punishment against a civilian population. U.S. policymakers must call for lifting the blockade to ensure a durable cease fire.
