On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old activist from Olympia, Washington, went to Gaza as a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement. Corrie tried to prevent the Israeli army from demolishing the home of a family she was staying with and was crushed to death by a bulldozer.
This program, sponsored by Palestine Online Store, will commemorate her life’s work with a screening of the short documentary film “Ambulance” and a reading of one of her last letters to her parents describing the situation in Gaza.
