RACHEL CORRIE- murdered 13 years ago today by the Israeli occupation forces while trying to protect a Palestinian home and family in Rafah, Gaza.
Friends remember friends: Two pictures of a café in Al-Khalil/ Hebron named after Rachel, close to the checkpoint sealing off Tel Rumeida. Third: A grafito there that resonates with her attitude - and her brute murder.
Rest in power, Rachel!


Rachel Corrie - April 10, 1979 - March 16, 2003

We remember Rachel.
We remember Gaza.
We remember our friends
in the Palestine
We hold in our hearts those throughout the world
who yearn for peace with justice.
We reach out to join hands with those who act
for a peace grounded in respect and love
for all of God’s peoples and creatures and for the planet.
This is what she stood for.
