The Rasmea Defense Committee and SJP are calling on all of us in the movement to be a part of her continued fight.

After a sham trial, Rasmea Odeh was found guilty of Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization. Prosecutor Jonathan Tukel took the assault on Rasmea a step further revoking her bail bond. Now Rasmea has been taken into custody where she awaits her March 10, 2015.

Rasema's defense team will be appealing the verdict, but in the mean time our task is to get Rasmea Odeh free from jail.

Join us for a rally at the Federal Building in Salt Lake City to demand that she be released immediately!
