Tell Bush to Veto Palestinian Sanctions Bill

December 7th, 2006

On December 7, the House of Representatives passed S.2370, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006, by Voice Vote (not recorded).

The House’s passage of S.2370, which was passed previously by the Senate on June 23, clears the way for the President to sign into law draconian economic and diplomatic sanctions against the Palestinian people for exercising their right to vote in legislative elections held earlier this year.

TAKE ACTION:Contact the White House NOW by phone 202-456-1111, by fax 202-456-2461, and by email and ask the President to veto S.2370, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act.Tell the President that the United States should not be sanctioning people for exercising their right to vote.

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is in the process of trying to set up a meeting with White House officials to deliver a petition signed by more than 340 US-based organizations opposing the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act and to ask for a veto.
