March 16th: Thirteenth anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie - International Middle East Media Center


March 16th: Thirteenth anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie - International Middle East Media Center: After Rachel Corrie was killed, her parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, demanded an investigation of her death and justice for those responsible. Thirteen years later, a full, credible investigation has yet to be carried out, according to the late activist's family.

On the anniversary of her death, the Rachel Corrie Foundation held an event in her hometown of Olympia, Washington, titled “Remember Rachel – Remember Gaza”. The event featured a talk by a friend of Rachel's, who was volunteering in the International Solidarity Movement with Rachel in 2003 when she was killed.

Rachel was crushed to death March 16, 2003, by an Israeli military, US-funded, Caterpillar D9R bulldozer in Rafah, Gaza, while nonviolently protesting the impending demolition of the home of a Palestinian family. This was one of thousands of homes eventually destroyed in Gaza in clearing demolitions, described in the 2004 Human Rights Watch Report, Razing Rafah.
