Rachel Corrie 1979-2003

Rachel Corrie was murdered by the IDF in 2003 while on an ISM mission in Rafah. The lie that calls itself her government never demanded accountability. But we have and we will continue. Rachel inspired many in a generation of activists who refused to be frightened by her murder and continued her work in ISM missions in Palestine. I don't count myself among the brave. But I went with an ISM mission in 2003, six months after her death, and the example she sat, although she never wanted to set that example, played a part in my decision to go. Remember Rachel and stand for justice and humanity. Free Palestine!
