Rasmea Odeh Live Stream Events Available for the Week of Action

National Week of Action to Defend Rasmea February 9-15

We are organizing two live stream appearances by Rasmea Odeh to take place around the week of action. These live streams are an opportunity to have Rasmea’s presence at events around the country.


Rasmea will give a prepared talk and take questions that are submitted via chat or email. The proposal is that her talk would be part of a program that includes at least one local speaker on the next steps in defense work, but it will also work within a program on political repression, Palestine, etc.

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

Event Information
Mon, 2015-02-09 (All day) - Sun, 2015-02-15 (All day)

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.

All out to support Rasmea Odeh in Detroit on March 12th!

Come to Detroit or organize solidarity rallies in your city!


Stand with Rasmea and fill the federal courthouse in Detroit!

We are committed to filling the courtroom, and an overflow room, on Rasmea's sentencing day on March 12th.  We will also organize a picket in front of the courthouse one hour before the hearing.
