Washington State Muslims Rally for Detainee


On Tuesday, October 12, the Seattle
office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Seattle) will
join a rally urging that due process rights be accorded to Muslim detainee
Majid al-Massari.

CAIR-Seattle will join al-Massari’s co-workers from the University of
Washington School of Nursing, his attorney, and other civil rights
advocates at the Immigration hearing to determine al-Massari’s
“removeability” being held at the I.C.E. Tacoma Detention Facility at 1 pm.

Al-Massari has been held under tight security since his arrest in July for
a relatively routine immigration violation and was held for more than a
week in solitary confinement in a federal detention center without being
allowed to contact his family or an attorney.

WHEN: 1 p.m., Tuesday, October 12, 2004
WHERE: Immigration and Custom Enforcement Tacoma, Northwest Detention
Center, 1623 East J Street, Tacoma, Washington

CONTACT: CAIR-Seattle, Samia El-Moslimany, 206-409-3407, E-MAIL:;
Rami Al-Kabra, 206-349-5995, E-MAIL:
