Earlier this year, the Israeli Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the family of Rachel Corrie, exonerating the Zionist military of all wrongdoing. The family had challenged a lower court’s controversial 2012 ruling.
On March 16, 2003, twenty-three-year-old Corrie, a pro-Palestinian activist, was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer while she was attempting to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in the Gaza Strip.
According to other activists who were present at the scene of the tragic death, Rachel was clearly visible to the driver of the bulldozer.
Rachel’s death has inspired many international rights activists to go to the Gaza Strip.
