Tampa activists plan to rally here in support of long-time Palestinian American leader Rasmea Odeh, on Monday, June 13, 5:30 p.m. at 56th and Fowler Avenue. The rally coincides with Odeh’s same-day court appearance in Detroit, Michigan, where she is challenging a trumped-up immigration charge.

Jessica Schwartz, of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression states, “We encourage people in our community to stand in solidarity with Rasmea Odeh because we have seen it in Tampa and we must stand against Islamophobia, anti-Arab racism and political repression all over the U.S.”
