Milwaukee, August 5: Palestine and Political Repression, The Case Of Rasmea Odeh

EVENT: http://tinyurl.com/qf62kar

6:30 p.m., UW-Milwaukee Student Union, 2200 Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee

Please join Progressive Students of Milwaukee as we host Hatem Abudayyeh, Executive Director of the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), who will speak about the politically-motivated arrest of his colleague, Rasmea Odeh.

Rasmea Yousef Odeh was arrested at her home on Oct. 22, 2013, by agents from the Department of Homeland Security, alleging an immigration violation on a 20-year-old application. Rasmea, who has made it her life’s work to serve and help empower Palestinian and Arab families, is the victim of another witch-hunt by our federal law enforcement agencies, which continue to violate the civil rights of Arabs and Muslims with impunity, particularly those who are critical of U.S. support for Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people.

$15 MINIMUM WAGE NOW!
STOP THE FOOD STAMP CUTS!

Another wave of food stamp cuts are underway, on top of federal food stamp cuts that hit millions of poor and working people twice since November. States are reinstating work requirements and ending waivers to allow less people to qualify. But there are no jobs, especially at decent pay with benefits! And most people report they already run out of SNAP benefits after two weeks. Help us build the August 16 ‘Food is a Right’ People’s Assembly in Chicago this summer to demand money for food and jobs, not wars abroad. We will hold panels and plan actions to demand…

Stop all cuts to government SNAP and food programs

Healthy food affordable for all – end food desserts

Economic justice for food, agricultural and all workers -
including the right to unionize

Hold the corporate food industry and agribusiness accountable for their environmental and health devastation in the U.S. and worldwide
