REMEMBER RACHEL CORRIE
Vigil in memory of the brutal murder of Rachel Corrie
When: Tuesday, March 16th, 4-6 PM
Where: Israeli Consulate, 6380 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles
One year ago, 23-year-old American Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by
an Israeli bulldozer as she stood in front of the home of a Palestinian
physician in Gaza. The home was due to be destroyed by the fourth largest
military in the world, so they could build a sentry tower.
The Israeli government has bulldozed thousands ofPalestinian homes and
businesses over the past three years, simply because it wants the land.
Rachel was trying to stop them from demolishing this one. She was in
full view of the driver, dressed in a fluorescent vest, with only a
bullhorn and her courage to protect her.
The soldier ran over her, then left the Caterpillar bulldozer blade down
as he dragged it back over her body in full view of several witnesses
from the International Solidarity Movement. To date, no one
responsible for her murder has been charged or arrested. Instead, the
Israeli government has blamed Rachel, the victim, for her own murder.
Please join us in front of the consulate to remember Rachel Corrie and
carry on her work of opposing Israel's brutal 37-year military
occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem.
