Community film screening & discussion to build support for Rasmea Odeh*

A Palestinian woman, Rasmea Odeh, was arrested at her home on the 
morning of Oct. 22, by agents of the Department of Homeland Security for 
allegedly not mentioning that she had been arrested and tortured by the 
state of Israel. As a along time Palestinian activist and community 
organizer, the targeting of Rasmea is a part of an ongoing campaign to 
criminalize progressive Palestine activism in the US.

Rasmea's work as the Associate Director of the Arab American Action 
Network made her a leading organizer in the women's movement in Chicago.

The documentary film, Women in Struggle was made close to a decade ago. 
  It follows the story of 4 Palestinian women, including Rasmea Odeh, 
that were tortured in Israeli prisons.  45 years later, Rasmea is still 
being targeted for her political activism.  Join us for a discussion on 
her case and its implications for our work.

    *Monday, December 9 - 7PM
    518 Valencia Street, San Francisco*
