50 members of JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE in SAN DIEGO held a sit-in at REP. SARA JACOBS' OFFICE

San Diego, CA (NOV 1, 2023) — 50 members of Jewish Voice for Peace, including Jews and allies, protested at Representative Sara Jacobs' office today. They demanded that Representative Jacobs take an immediate public stand to demand an end to the genocide in Gaza and sign onto the Ceasefire NOW

resolution. Representative Jacobs' office did not allow this group of peace activists to enter so they instead delivered their message outside her office doors. Demonstrators held signs with the messages "Jews say: stop genocide of Palestinians", "Jews for Palestinian Lives - Ceasefire Now!", and "Never again – for anyone".

Oren Robinson, a member of Jewish Voice for Peace San Diego, stated "Two weeks ago we delivered to Representative Jacobs one stone for every three lives that have been lost. Since then that number has more than doubled. There have been more Palestinian children killed by the US-funded attacks by the state of Israel than in all of the other global armed conflicts since 2019." Oren continued, "Our Congressperson is not here to meet with us. We will be coming back and we will continue to come back."

Lily Ostrer, a member of Jewish Voice for Peace San Diego, stated "The U.S. government is enabling the Israeli government's atrocities by sending billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars and pledging blanket support and international cover for any actions taken by the Israeli government. Jews in San Diego say not in our name."

Demonstrators then called Representative Jacobs' office to demand she take action to stop the genocide in Gaza. They closed out the demonstration singing "Ceasefire, Ceasefire, children are dying it can't get more dire." The U.S. government is enabling the Israeli government's atrocities by sending billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars and pledging blanket support and international cover for any actions taken by the Israeli government.
