Over 500 former Biden campaign staffers call for ceasefire 

More than 500 people who previously worked on US President Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign have signed a letter urging for a ceasefire in the war in Gaza.

The signatories of the letter, reported by Vox, include staffers from Biden's 2020 campaign headquarters, the Democratic National Committee, and former staff across 21 states.

"As President of the United States, you have significant influence in this perilous moment," the group said.

"[Y]ou must call for a ceasefire, hostage exchange, and de-escalation, and take concrete steps to address the conditions of occupation, apartheid, and ethnic cleansing at the root of the horrific violence we are witnessing now."
