The march is a part of the new national #SanctionIsrael campaign calling on the Biden administration and Congress to sanction Israel and stop giving it billions in U.S. tax dollars and military hardware – like the very same bombs that Israel just used to obliterate entire Palestinian families in the Gaza Strip.
