Students for Justice in Palestine from all over NYC are calling for an emergency action this Friday to demand that justice be served for Rasmea Odeh. She was found “guilty” this week for supposedly lying on her immigration papers, but really because she fights back against the injustices at the hands of the Israeli state. She experienced the injustices first hand when she was sexually tortured by Israeli soldiers and spent ten years in prison after being forced to sign a false confession.
After living as a U.S. citizen for ten years, the United States government decided to repress Rasmea Odeh as another way to crackdown on Palestinians activists.
The U.S. has allied itself with Israel and thus, has shown itself to go against the Palestinian people, to support the genocide and displacement of Palestinians, and the abolishment of Palestinian land.
Rasmea Odeh will not stand back while the lives and homes of her people are being destroyed and we will not stand back and watch another important political leader rot behind bars!
ALL OUT FOR RASMEA ODEH !
