The people of Palestine have been fighting for their basic human rights for 70 years. Over the past six weeks, the people of Gaza, most of them internally displaced refugees, have marched on Fridays as part of The Great March of Return- demanding to return to their homelands, a right guaranteed under international law. They have been routinely met with brutal violence from Israeli soldiers who have used deadly force against these unarmed civilians.
On Monday, May 14th, the US moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, resulting in one of the bloodiest days of the Great March of Return- with more than 60 Palestinian protesters massacred by Israeli snipers- many of them children.
Senator Schumer has PRAISED Donald Trump for moving the embassy to Jerusalem- as nonviolent protesters are being killed by the dozens.
Freedom for Gaza. Respect International Law. Palestinians have the right to return. End the Occupation.
