We lost the vote, but won the night.
13 senators voted to override, 14 wer required. Only 5 senators voted to uphold, less than half the 13.
We made a statement recorded for posterity and forced everyone to listen and watch what the nature of Israeli occupation is, to listen to Palestinian voices, from Palestine and from the US, telling their stories. These transcripts will stay preserved in recorded history, and we shall overcome.
Make no mistake, we lost the vote, but we won the night.
