37] – CODEPINK Congress [] is featuring American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) investigators and researchers who produced the report entitled, “The Companies Profiting from Israel’s 2023-2024 Attacks on Gaza” on Tues., March 19 at 8 PM ET.  Israel’s genocide in Gaza relies on a steady stream of weapons –attack jets, bunker busters, cluster bombs, & artillery —from the United States, where Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and other war profiteers count their profits, thanks to a complicit White House.  As Israel bombs and prepares for a ground invasion of Rafah, a distribution point for minuscule amounts of Israel-approved food and water, the White House is demanding Congress approve $14 billion more in weapons transfers to Israel. What is to be done? Besides pushing back in the halls of Congress and our home districts–besides shutting down bridges and train stations–activists can boycott and protest companies complicit in Israel’s occupation, as well as others directly arming the genocide.
