Monday, April 15: Join the #Strike4Gaza to end the genocide!

Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, is joining with 23+ Palestinian and Muslim organizations to call on students, workers and all people of conscience to join us in the #Strike4Gaza on Tax Day, April 15th, for a national strike demanding an END to this U.S.-funded genocide of the Palestinian people! 

As we mark Eid this year, we are unable to celebrate due to the ongoing genocide being carried out by the Zionist regime. Even more, by committing gross violations of human rights with US weapons, Israel acts with impunity by US permission and financial support.

We will disrupt business as usual, demonstrate the power of the masses of people who stand with Palestine, and raise our demands to end the genocide, end all US support and funding of Israel, and the total liberation of Palestine, including the right to return of all Palestinians!

Workers: call off work! Students: don’t go to school! Business owners: close your shops! Join a local action!

In solidarity with Gaza, we call upon all Muslims and allies in the US including workers, business owners, service providers, parents, students, etc.

 1) to abstain from business as usual (e.g., no spending, no work, no school, no banking);

2) to abstain from participation in any form of action that stimulates the economy;

3) join local actions or demonstrations in support and solidarity with Palestine on April 15th.


The upcoming national strike on April 15th is not merely an act of solidarity but a direct demand on the US administration to take decisive and permanent action to end the ongoing genocide in Gaza. At the heart of this matter is the United States’ pivotal collaborative role in the occupation of Palestine as the US holds the power to unilaterally call for a permanent ceasefire and exert pressure on Israel to lift the siege on Gaza.

In failing to do so, the US administration has collaborated in the killing and destruction that has claimed the lives of over 35,000 Palestinians, including 15,000 children and the flattening of all forms of infrastructure including over 300,000 structures, including hospitals, schools, and warehouses storing aid. The Biden administration has not only failed to compel Israel to lift the blockade but has actively contributed to the bombardment of Gaza through substantial military funding and flow of weapons to the Zionist regime.
