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.
Stand with Rasmea and fill the federal courthouse in Detroit!
Our work is not merely an act of solidarity with Rasmea Odeh, but also serves as a challenge to the unjust prosecution of a beloved Palestinian icon, as well as a refusal to accept the criminalization of an entire community.
Rasmea’s trial is set to begin on Tuesday, November 4th at the Federal Courthouse at 231 W. Lafayette Blvd, Detroit, Michigan. We are committed to filling the courtroom every day of the trial, which is expected to last up to three weeks.
