Cynthia Nixon launches hunger strike over Gaza cease fire

"Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon is on a hunger strike to demand a permanent cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

In an interview Monday, the "And Just Like That…" actress called on President Joe Biden to "make a cease-fire happen."

"The deaths that we have seen are largely due to the bombs, but so many Palestinians now are on the verge of starvation. Only 7% of the nutrition they need is being let in on a daily basis," Nixon said. "So we are here hunger-striking just to sort of mirror to Biden the kind of deprivation that is happening in Gaza, and how he has it within his power to make a cease-fire happen and to allow humanitarian aid in."

Nixon will join progressive lawmakers in the strike for two days, while some Democratic state congressional representatives will strike for up to five days, according to Time.

The strike comes amid a pause in hostilities between Israel and Hamas, in which Israeli hostages and Palestinian prisoners have been exchanged.
