Justice For Rasmea Odeh

Join us in fighting for justice for Rasmea Odeh on the day of her sentencing. Odeh is a 67-year-old Palestinian community leader in Chicago. In November 2014, hundreds gathered for every day of her week-long trial in Detroit, where she was unjustly convicted on charges of Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization, for allegedly giving untruthful answers on her application for U.S. citizenship over a decade ago. The case was initially brought based on her 1969 arrest in Palestine by Israeli Occupation Forces. She was sexually assaulted and tortured into a false confession, and that conviction by the Israelis in 1970 was used against her in the U.S. case. Odeh’s supporters say the Detroit verdict was unfair, largely because of decisions by federal Judge Gershwin Drain, who allowed the Israeli conviction into evidence, but did not allow her legal team to present the rape, torture, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This and more will be the basis of her appeal of the conviction, a notice of which will be filed immediately after the March 12 sentencing hearing. Fight for Justice and Fight for Rasmea Odeh! We'll see you there! To find out more about the case please visit Free Rasmea Now and stopfbi.net
