Government prosecutors have alleged that public protests outside the Detroit federal courthouse during hearings in the case of Palestinian-American community leader Rasmea Odeh are part of a potentially “criminal” attempt at “jury tampering.”

Activists will fill the courtroom in Detroit on November 4th for her next trial date. The Milwaukee solidarity rally will stand up for first ammendment free speech rights on Nov 5th and say "Solidarity is not a crime!"

Vicious, unjust rulings in case of Rasmea Odeh - Come to Detroit November 4 and Stand Up for Justice!

Statement of Rasmea Defense Committee

Judge Gershwin Drain handed down a series of outrageous and unjust decisions, Oct 27 – 28, in the case of revered Palestinian American leader Rasmea Odeh. The government is going all out to railroad Rasmea, to jail and deport her. There was nothing fair about her being indicted on trumped up immigration charges in the first place. The recent rulings by Judge Drain indicate that there will be nothing fair about Rasmea’s trial either.

All Out for Rasmea! We Demand Justice!

Tucson joins a national day of action to demand that the Federal Government drop the unjust and illegal charges against the courageous Arab-American organizer Rasmea Odeh.

The powerful pressure campaign of thousands of people committed to justice has created another attack on the constitutional rights of protestors and organizers. See article: http://www.stopfbi.net/2014/10/6/detroit-us-attorney-threatens-supporters-rasmea-odeh

Stand with Rasmea and fill the federal courthouse in Detroit!

Rasmea Odeh's trial begins on November 4th. This is after the original judge stepped down due to his donations to Israel, and the court ruling in favor of partial sequestration of jurors. Rasmea Odeh is NOT a criminal, and activism is NOT a crime.

Join us at 5PM on November 4th to stand in solidarity with Rasmea as she goes on trial for trumped-up immigration violation charges, which stems from her time in an Israeli prison over forty years ago, where she was tortured into a confession for a crime she did not commit.
