Come join us in front of the Mickey Leland Federal Building to demand justice for Rasmea Odeh.

Rasmea Odeh is a 67 year old Palestinian American community leader who was tortured by the Israeli government in 1969. On November 10th in front of supporters in the courtroom, Rasmea was found guilty of one count of Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization and faces sentencing on March 12. Though Rasmea has been unjustly convicted, her struggle is far from over.

Rasmea’s case is part of a larger campaign against Palestinian leaders, institutions, and community members; as well as an example of government repression waged against oppressed nationalities, anti-war, social justice, and international solidarity activists.

Let your voice be heard and demand justice for this remarkable Palestinian activist. This protest is part of the national week of action around Rasmea. We will protest until 5:30 PM.

We suggest that you park a few blocks away (around St Joseph and Fannin (about 5 or 6 blocks), or take the rail (get off at Bell station).

We hope to see you there!
