RISE for Peace and an Immediate Ceasefire in Gaza
We - ONE BILLION RISING - a world movement of women and men working to end violence against women and girls, and all the intersectional injustices that sustain the impunity that keep it in place - call for an immediate ceasefire. We call for an end to the occupation of Palestine and all forms of oppression that lead to more violence.
Already countless civilians have died - many of whom are women and children.
We cry with and rise for the mothers who have lost their children and families and who live in daily terror in this ongoing war.
We cry with those that have been occupied and diminished and who are seeking recourse.
We know that our sisters on both sides long for connection, justice and peace.
And we stand in solidarity with the women and men of Palestine and peace loving people of Israel who demand an end to the bombings and air strikes now.
