April 14: Palestine Solidarity Under Attack: From the Holy Land 5 to the Anti War 23
Sunday, April 14 – 3:00 pm
301 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis
The Holy Land Foundation was once the largest Muslim charity in the United States. That’s until the Bush administration shut it down three months after 9/11 because of school and medical supplies sent to Gaza. Following a decade of raids, arrests and trials, the Holy Land five received sentences ranging from 15 to 65 years.
Noor Elashi, daughter of Ghassan Elashi (one of the imprisoned Holy Land 5) &
John Cline, Elashi’s attorney, will speak about the outrageous case made against the five men of the Holy Land Five.
Speakers will also talk about current attacks on Palestine solidarity.

Come learn about Palestinian solidarity and the political repression of Palestinian solidarity activists in the U.S. from Noor Elashi, a young writer and daughter of one of the Holy Land Five. The Holy Land Five are founders of a charitable organization called the Holy Land Foundation, which was shut down in the anti-Arab aftermath of 9/11. In a case of blatant political repression and abuse of civil liberties, the Holy Land Five are all serving prison sentences because of their charity work.

Free pizza!
