Media contact: Gabriella Novello,

RONKONKOMA, NY—Democratic Congressional Candidate Elaine DiMasi (NY-01) released the following statement today on the recent violence in Gaza:

“Yesterday, more than 60 people lost their lives in Gaza. And all over the world, the right to peacefully protest has come under fire. This must change. We’ve seen in our own country how peaceful demonstrations welcome dialogue but are met with violence, and in today’s global economy, diplomacy is more important than ever.

“To achieve peace between any states, we must allow diplomatic channels to move forward. I urge all to exercise restraint in times of conflict.”
