[URGENT] Al-Quds is under attack! Take action now!

Statements

Over the weekend, we shared the disturbing news with you that Israel dramatically escalated its assault on Palestinians in Jerusalem by attacking worshipers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and now Israel is attacking the Gaza Strip with reports of fatalities mounting.

These attacks come against the background of imminent Israeli plans to forcibly displace nearly 2,000 Palestinians from their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Sheikh Jarrah and the Al Bustan neighborhood of Silwan.

During these final days of Ramadan, we need everyone to redouble their efforts to stand in solidarity with Palestinians in Jerusalem. The next 24 hours are critical to our efforts to get the United States to prevent Israel from engaging in these war crimes.

Please take action by:

1. Signing and sharing this petition to Secretary of State Antony Blinken to stop the Jerusalem expulsions at: http://bit.ly/StopJerusalemExpulsions

AMP, working in coordination with dozens of organizations, has helped mobilize nearly 150,000 signatures! Please take a moment to sign and share the petition on your social media today before we help to deliver the petition tomorrow.

 

2. Share. Join us and a large coalition of groups in a social media storm tomorrow, Tuesday, May 11 at 12 PM Eastern. After the petition is delivered tomorrow, we’ll be taking to social media to demand the State Department prevent Israel from carrying out the forced displacement of Palestinians in Jerusalem.

3. Rally with us in person or virtually tomorrow, Tuesday, May 11 at 4 PM Eastern at the State Department. Join us and a large coalition of organizations to rally tomorrow across the street from the main entrance of the State Department to press our demands.

Our Executive Director Dr. Osama Abuirshaid will join a dynamic group of speakers. We will be going live from AMP’s Instagram and Facebook pages during the protest so make sure to follow us @ampalestine for updates.

Get more details, RSVP, and spread the word through this Facebook event. If you’re not in the Washington, DC area, then you can watch the livestream of the rally at this page.

4. On this 29th night of Ramadan, we urge mosques to dedicate this night to Al Quds and Al Aqsa. Make dua, share the petition and support AMP by joining our email list and following us on social media. 

Despite Israel’s brutal oppression and attempts to drive Palestinians from their homes and places of worship in Jerusalem, Palestinians are maintaining their steadfastness and demanding their rights. 

Time is of the essence. The people of Jerusalem can’t wait. Let’s support them by taking action today and tomorrow!
