Rasmea’s legal team files new brief, appeals fight continues

Rasmea Defense CommitteePress Statement

“…Rasmea did not receive a fair trial, so the appeals court must reverse the conviction and grant a new one,” said Nesreen Hasan of the Rasmea Defense Committee. “Besides the legal mistakes made by the trial judge, we also know that she was arrested and falsely accused only because she has devoted her whole life to defending the rights of her people, the Palestinians. She never committed any crime.”

It is expected that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will hear oral arguments in Cincinnati sometime in September. The Rasmea Defense Committee, which is made up of over 70 organizations from across the country, will be mobilizing her supporters to be there. Just last month, Black Liberation icon Angela Davis spoke in support of Rasmea in Chicago, pledging that she also would do everything she could to ensure #Justice4Rasmea.
