Committee to Stop FBI Repression - Tampa says
Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh is asking to speak to organized groups of supporters by video conference on Thursday, June 11, 6:30 p.m. CDT/7:30 EST, the day after her defense attorney Michael Deutsch files her appeal.

Deutsch will explain the appeal process and what to expect as we struggle for justice for Rasmea.

Rasmea is the 68-year-old Palestinian American community leader who was tortured in Israel in 1969. Recently she was targeted for political repression by the U.S. government and put on trial last year. Unable to obtain a fair trial where she could speak about the torture and rape by the Israeli occupation army, she was convicted.

Outrageously, given the minor charges against her, she was sentenced to 18 months in prison, followed by deportation. She is at home in Chicago preparing for her appeal.

The appeal takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit. We plan to be there in solidarity with Rasmea when it happens, perhaps in September.

We will be taking questions before the event so come prepared!
