Rasmea Defense Committee
Over 100 people joined Rasmea Odeh from Chicago during her trial on trumped up political charges last year, and after being convicted, again during her sentencing earlier this year. She still needs us one more time in Cincinnati for her appeal on October 14th
, so the Rasmea Defense Committee is asking for your financial commitment.
We need to raise $5,000 for two charter buses and other transportation expenses to get 110 of Rasmea's closest supporters to Ohio for the appeal.
As her defense attorneys have said since the beginning of this ordeal, "You [Rasmea's supporters] provide public testimony when you rally outside the courthouse and then file in to fill the courtroom. Public testimony of not only the power of Rasmea's positive influence on her friends and colleagues, and the people she organizes, but public testimony also of the fact that she did not receive a fair trial and that there are people who are going to hold the system—prosecutors and judges—accountable.
Please donate all you can to Rasmea's appeal fund. It is imperative that we fill the courthouse one last time!
