Dozens of Activists Arrested at U.S. Capitol Protesting U.S. Funding of Israel

Over 60 national movement and organizational leaders were arrested protesting at the U.S. Capitol against a proposed military funding package, sending billions of dollars to Israel.

They say it’s fueling genocide in Gaza and occupation of the Palestinian people. They also said they are fighting against increased border militarization and immigration enforcement in the US at the southern border.

The protest was led by the Action Center on Race and the Economy, the Adalah Justice Project, the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, and the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights. It was also supported by dozens of other organizations.

Protesters carried children’s shoes to pay tribute to the more than 8,000 children killed by the Israeli military in Gaza, and those that they say are being victimized by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). They also held banners that said ‘ceasefire now.’​
