CAIR and VFP are calling on Microsoft (Xbox) and Sony (PlayStation) and Valve not to host or digitally distribute the soon-to-be-released video game “Six Days in Fallujah,” developed by Highwire Games and published by Victura. 

CAIR and VFP believe at its core, the game is an “Arab murder simulator” that glorifies violence that took the lives of over 800 Iraqi civilians, justifies the illegal invasion of Iraq and reinforces Islamophobic narratives. 

Want to take action? CAIR and VFP have launched an online petition calling on the video game industry to drop Six Days in Fallujah.

TAKE ACTION: SIGN THE PETITION AND JOIN CAIR AND VETERANS FOR PEACE IN CALLING ON MICROSOFT, SONY, AND VALVE NOT HOST OR DIGITALLY DISTRIBUTE SIX DAYS IN FALLUJAH.

The open petition states: 

“As a gamer I join the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Veterans for Peace in calling on Microsoft, Sony and Valve to ban their platforms from hosting or digitally distributing Six Days in Fallujah, an Arab murder simulator that will only normalize violence against Muslims in America and around the world. 

“The gaming industry must stop dehumanizing Muslims. Video games like Six Days in Fallujah only serve to glorify violence that took the lives of hundreds of Iraqi civilians, justify the Iraq war, and reinforce anti-Muslim sentiment at a time when anti-Muslim bigotry continues to threaten human life.”  

CAIR’s mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.    

Veterans For Peace is a network of over 140 chapters worldwide whose work includes: educating the public, advocating for a dismantling of the war economy, providing services that assist veterans and victims of war, and most significantly, working to end all wars.
