MN Coalition for Palestinian Rights Statement in Solidarity with Rasmea Odeh

The Mn Coalition for Palestinian Rights (MNCPR) condemns the politically-motivated attack on Rasmea Odeh, a Palestinian community leader arrested in her Chicago home on October 22, by agents of the Department of Homeland Security.
The case against Odeh is not about immigration, but an attempt to silence her, to cut short her important community organizing, and to attack the struggle for a free Palestine.  This attack is another example of the continuing repression of Palestinians and people who stand in solidarity with them.  The attack on Rasmea Odeh, much like the 2010 FBI raids and ongoing grand jury investigation of 23 Midwest anti-war activists, including individuals who organize with our coalition, are a clear signal that the US government is working to intimidate and silence voices of dissent. This attack is another example of the continuing repression of Palestinians and people who stand in solidarity with them.  
MNCPR stands with Rasmea Odeh, and against those who would silence and imprison her.  We oppose the enforcement of the Israeli occupation of Palestine by Homeland Security, the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Attorney’s office.
