Now the U.S. government is carrying out enforcement of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and Rasmea faces being stripped of U.S. citizenship, a prison term of ten years and probably, after prison, deportation. The charges against her are a political attack on her as an individual, and on Palestinian, Arab and Muslim communities across the U.S. as a whole. The charges against her are part of an ongoing campaign against Palestinians and those who work in solidarity with them. Barry Jonas, the same prosecutor pursuing 23 anti-war and international solidarity activists, including nine from Minneapolis, is helping build the case against Rasmea.
Rasmea is the associate director of the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), one of the oldest institutions in Chicago’s Arab community. She leads a women’s committee with 600 Arab and Muslim women and she is also a leader in the immigrant rights movement in Chicago. Join us November 13 for a national day of action to support for Rasmea on her court date, demanding the charges against her be dropped. Organized by the MN Committee to Stop FBI Repression.
