All out for Detroit to defend Rasmea Odeh!

All out for Detroit to defend Rasmea Odeh!


Rasmea Odeh is a 67 year old Palestinian American community leader who was tortured by the Israelis in 1969, and is now being unjustly prosecuted by the U.S. government.  

Update (11/11/14):

Monday in front of supporters in the courtroom, US marshals placed Rasmea in handcuffs and under arrest. She will be detained until her sentencing, which is set for March 10, 2015. Our immediate and urgent task is to fight for her release from jail. The Rasmea Defense Committee with Students for Justice in Palestine is calling on Palestinian and Palestine solidarity organizations and others committed to opposing political repression across the United States to participate in a national week of action to win her freedom now.

*** Participate in the week of action Wednesday, November 12-18! ***
