National Week of Action to defend Rasmea, February 9-15

Published on Sat, 2015-01-24 13:56 
The campaign to defend long-time Palestinian American leader Rasmea Odeh has reached a critical stage. We urge everyone to join us in organizing an event or protest on your campus or in the community during the week of Feb. 9 – 15.
All of us need to shine a light on the real injustice that is taking place in Detroit. Rasmea, a Palestinian American woman who has done so much for so many, is facing deportation and up to ten years in jail on a trumped-up immigration charge.
We need to go all out in focusing attention on her case before her March 12 sentencing. After the sentencing, it is anticipated that the appeals process will start. This fight will not be over until we have justice.
Rasmea has made great contributions to the community and the cause of Palestinian freedom. We need to stand with her.
*This event is being called ad hoc in response to the above call.  Please distribute widely to your lists.  Respond to this email with any questions. Thanks.  Linda Jansen, Member Voices for Palestine
