‎The 10th Anniversary of Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist and member of International Solidarity Movement (ISM) from Olympia, Washington…, who was crushed to death by an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) armored bulldozer in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.Rachel Corrie had come to Gaza during the height of the second Palestinian intifada as part of her senior-year college assignment to connect her home town with Rafah in a sister cities project. While there she had engaged with other ISM activists in efforts to non-violently prevent the Israeli army’s demolition of the homes of Palestinian people.

Less than two months after her arrival, on March 16, 2003, Corrie was killed after a three-hour confrontation between two bulldozers and eight ISM activists. Wearing a bright orange fluorescent jacket and, until shortly before her death, using a megaphone, she was killed while standing in the path of a bulldozer that was about to demolish the house of local pharmacist Samir Nasrallah’s family whom she had befriended. She was run over twice by the bulldozer resulting in a fractured skull, shattered ribs and punctured lungs.
The ISM said she had placed herself between the bulldozer and a wall near Samir’s home. Members of the ISM said that she was killed by the Israeli bulldozer and that there was nothing to obscure the driver’s view.

R.I.P Rachel Corrie.

Let the world know we stand strong in solidarity against all occupation and injustices.
