Background:
Donald Trump has announced that the U.S. officially recognizes occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and will move the U.S. embassy to the city. This move grants legitimacy to Israel’s illegal and brutal military occupation and ignores its 330,000+ Palestinian residents.

Such a move legitimizes Jerusalem’s current separate-and-unequal – otherwise known as apartheid – regime between Israeli Jews and Palestinians, which discriminates against Palestinians in municipal planning services, taxation, housing and education, and is designed to demographically engineer a permanent Jewish majority.

Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the whole city is the equivalent of the U.S. giving a green light to longstanding Israeli government policies of dispossession/ethnic cleansing of Palestinian Jerusalemites from the city. Israel violates the Fourth Geneva Convention daily through its home demolitions (over lack of permits or as collective punishment), stripping residency status, the aparthied wall, lack of municipal services, and allowing settlers to seize property without consequences.

Further, this move is tantamount to recognition of Israel’s unilateral annexation, a violation of international law. Jerusalem has long been an international city, holy to many religions, and the international community and international law consider it to be occupied territory. Finally, recognizing Jerusalem as part of Israel would reverse decades of official U.S. policy not to recognize the sovereignty of any country over any part of Jerusalem until a permanent Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement is reached.

This move is but another example of Trump emboldening Israel’s extreme right-wing government and settler movement, and drives home the shared values of Trump and Netanyahu’s right-wing governments, both of which incite and exploit racism, xenophobia, and fear for political gain.

**We call on all concerned individuals to take a stand for the Palestinians, still occupied, still violently forced from their land, and still the victims of the shameful support of the US and western governments. Join the ‘ Stop Trump, Protect Jerusalem, Support Peace’ protest this Saturday December 9 at 12 noon at Centennial Olympic Park and Marietta Streets, Atlanta.**

3,000,000 strong and growing: Sign to impeach Trump

Fellow citizens,

Our movement for impeachment is 3,000,000 strong. Millions of Americans are standing strong for a critical purpose: the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. Now, we’re building our community and need you to add your name right away.

If you happen to be walking around Times Square, you may notice a brand new Need To Impeach digital billboard, featuring a map and a running count of the 3 million Americans who have signed our petition to impeach Donald Trump. It’s another illustration of our strength.

I want to make sure your signature is counted in that number. Add your name to our official petition demanding impeachment right now and make the counter tick-up by one more.

We launched this billboard in Times Square for a simple reason: The American people, Congress, and President Trump himself need to see the nationwide strength of our movement.

Thanks for being a part of this,
Tom Steyer Need to Impeach
