A call issued by UBUNTU in Durham, NC, USA...
We come together to declare our common humanity with the families suffering today in Palestine and Israel. They are all our sisters and brothers, our mothers and fathers, our sons and daughters, our friends and co-workers. Our common humanity with them does not end at a waters edge, at a border fence, or at a barrier wall. They are us and we are them. We will not be separated and we will not be divided.
We come together as people of many faiths who hear cries of suffering, injury, and death. We know that to remain silent is to remain complicit in this pain. It is to remain afraid. So it is better to speak -- for justice, for loving kindness, for the common humanity and beloved community of all people. We are all witnesses. We will not be silent.
Please join us as we:
Stand in solidarity
with the people
