    CALL FOR ACTION:  Protest against the indictment of Palestinian-American activist Rasmea Odeh


    Join the Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), the Palestinian Youth Movement(PYM), and the International Jewish anti-Zionist Network (IJAN):

    Protest Against the Indictment of Palestinian Activist, Rasmea Odeh

    Oscar Grant Plaza, Oakland

    Wednesday, November 13th @ 5pm

    The United States Palestinian Community Network (USPCN) and Rasmea’s supporters and legal team have called for the 13th of this month to be NATIONAL DAYS of ACTION to support Rasmea and demand dropping of the charges now!

    If convicted, Rasmea faces up to 10 years in prison, being stripped of her U.S. citizenship, and probable deportation. We cannot allow this to happen. The charges against her are a political attack on her as an individual and on Palestinian, Arab and Muslim communities across the U.S. as a whole. The U.S. government is attacking Rasmea just as they attacked the Holy Land Foundation, the 23 anti-war and international solidarity activists in 2010, Chicano leader, Carlos Montes, and many others who have fought for justice and dignity.

    Endorsed by: USPCN, Palestinian Youth Movement, Arab Resource and Organizing Center, International Jewish Anti-zionist Network, Middle East Children’s Alliance, Bay Area Committee to Stop Political Repression, National Lawyer’s Guild-San Francisco, Freedom Archives, Critical Resistance, All Of Us Or None
