WASHINGTON — As the Israeli-Hamas war escalates in the Middle East, protesters and House progressives have called for a cease-fire.

On Saturday, Washington D.C. saw ‘the largest pro-Palestinian demonstration in U.S. history,’ according to the International People’s Assembly, with thousands marching from Freedom Plaza to the White House.

Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-Ill.) is pushing for the Ceasefire Now Resolution, currently signed by 17 other Democrats. The legislation advocates for the Biden administration to facilitate a cease-fire and deliver humanitarian aid to the region.

With a mounting death toll, over 1,400 among the Israelis and 10,305 among the Palestinians, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health, a majority of Democrats are still supporting President Biden’s plan for humanitarian pauses.
