JUSTICE FOR RASMEA ODEH!
Tucson Supports Rasmea!
Detroit Turns up on November 29th
(Important hearing on her case taking place in Detroit)
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 unjustly convicted of one count of Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization and sentenced to 18 months in prison and deportation.
The appeals court heard oral arguments on October 14th and we are currently awaiting the decision. Rasmea’s struggle is far from over and we still need your support to ensure that we win justice.
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.
We will discuss the history of her case as well as other injustices of political repression. This day is also International Day of Solidarity with Palestine so we will also provide a brief history of that struggle and update the current prospects for Liberation in Palestine!
Please join the UA Students for Justice in Palestine and the Tucson Anti War Committee for this night of resistance to injustice!
