Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Ohio: Court Considers Appeal of Palestinian Activist Rasmea Odeh

HeadlineOct 14, 2015

In the United States, supporters of prominent Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh are rallying outside an Ohio courthouse today as an appeals court considers arguments she was denied a fair trial. Odeh was convicted of immigration fraud and sentenced to 18 months in prison and deportation from the United States for failing to disclose her conviction on bombing charges by an Israeli military court more than 40 years ago. Odeh says her conviction was obtained through torture and sexual assault in Israeli custody. She has lived in the United States for more than 20 years. Her supporters say she was targeted over her support for Palestinian liberation. Odeh is free on bond pending her appeal.
