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


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.
