Activists came to senators, urging them to support a ceasefire in Gaza.

American activists from the anti-war movement Codepink went to the offices of a number of US senators on Friday, urging them to advocate for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, the movement reports.

“We go from office to office and tell senators that they must immediately call for a ceasefire in Gaza,” one of the founders of the movement, Medea Benjamin, wrote on the social network X.


The movement’s page on a similar social network reports that activists have already visited the office of Senator Jeanne Shaheen. Judging by the published photographs, there are about ten activists walking around the senators’ offices. They came with anti-war posters and Palestinian flags.


There are no reports of arrests.
