Nationwide White House Call-In/Email Campaign on Palestine Tomorrow
ADC strongly urges all its members and supporters to join a nationwide
call-in/email campaign to the White House tomorrow, Tuesday, April 2,
between the hours of 9 AM and 9 PM eastern time, to protest Israel’s
onslaught against the Palestinians and to demand an end to the illegal
Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Remember that the White House will take a tally of all calls and e-mails
it receives, so every single call you make or email you send counts.
Although originally initiated by ADC's Chicago chapter, this is now a
nationwide campaign, so expect lines to be busy and please keep trying
until you get through. This is the least we can do to show our support
and solidarity with the Palestinian people who are being subjected to
around-the-clock Israeli aggression. So alert your family and friends
to join you tomorrow, in what will only take a few minutes of your time,
but will mean so much.
WHITE HOUSE CONTACT INFORMATION:

the State Department and the UN Secretary General endorsed today.
Resolution1402 demands an immediate Israeli withdrawal from all
Palestinian areas re-invaded since Friday.
2. Emphasize that there is no military solution to the conflict. Peace
and security for both Israelis and Palestinians can only come with an
end to the 34-year old Israeli occupation. Urge President Bush to
embrace the Saudi-initiated Arab League Declaration offering Israel
peace and normal relations with all the Arab states in return for Israel
withdrawing fully from the West Bank Gaza and East Jerusalem and a just
resolution to the refugee problem based on UN resolutions. The Arab
League plan provides the best opportunity in years to resolve the
conflict, meets the stated needs of all parties and is consistent with
3. Express your outrage that Israeli occupation forces have reportedly
been attacking Palestinian medical services and personnel, including
hospitals, ambulances, doctors and nurses, and paramedics.
4. Urge President Bush to express as much outrage about Israel's killing
of over 1,200 Palestinians in 17 months as he does concerning the deaths
of 400 Israelis in the same period. Most of the dead on both sides are
