WNPJ member groups and affiliates issue Statements and Action Alerts on Hamas/Palestine/Israel See the developing list here: https://www.wnpj.org/post/statements-from-wnpj-groups-and-their-national-affiliates-on-palestine-israel-hamas

URGERNT ACTION ALERT: As Gaza reels under the horrific Israeli bombardment, we are asking all WNPJ member groups and individual to take whatever action you can to stop it. Our government is using our tax dollars to underwrite and escalate this war against 2 million captive Palestinians -- at least three-quarters of whom are women and children -- with weapons, military advisors and political cover. In doing this they risk a much wider regional conflagration that could engulf many more millions of people in the region and beyond.
