Palestine Solidarity Under Attack: From the Holy Land 5 to the Anti War 23

Sunday, April 14 @ 3pm @ Mayday Bookstore @ 301 Cedar Ave, Minneapolis

The Holy Land Foundation was once the largest Muslim charity in the United States. That’s until the Bush administration shut it down three months after 9/11 because of school and medical supplies sent to Gaza. Following a decade of raids, arrests and trials, the Holy Land five received sentences ranging from 15 to 65 years.
Noor Elashi, daughter of Ghassan Elashi, and John Cline, Elashi’s attorney, will speak about the outrageous case made against the five men. Speakers will also talk about current attacks on Palestine solidarity.
