Who Was Rachel Corrie?

On March 16, 2003, the Israeli army crushed U.S. peace activist Rachel Corrie to death with a Caterpillar D-9 bulldozer in a refugee camp in Rafah, in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip. Rachel was killed while she non-violently tried to prevent the demolition by Israel of a Palestinian family’s home.

Since her death, an enormous amount of solidarity activities have been carried out in her name around the world.  Join us in continuing Rachel's legacy!
