US faith leaders call for a ceasefire. Will President Biden listen? – Al Jazeera English

The US government has so far ignored calls for a ceasefire in Gaza. Faith leaders are taking steps to try to change that.

As the United States government resists calls for a ceasefire in Gaza, a coalition of faith leaders, artists and activists in the US are on a 240km (150-mile) journey to Washington DC, in what they’re calling a “Pilgrimage for Peace.” Their goal is to convince the administration of US President Joe Biden to halt all weapons funding to Israel and push for a permanent ceasefire in Palestine.
