Film screening: "Rachel: An American Conscience"
Mar 11, 2015

Twelve years ago, Rachel Corrie, a young activist from Olympia, Washington, went to Gaza to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people. She tried to prevent the Israeli army from demolishing the home of a family she was staying with, and was crushed to death by the bulldozer. The Israeli "justice system" recently ruled that the army was not guilty of any wrong-doing, even though there is clear evidence that the driver saw her. This screening is in commemoration of the 12th anniversary of her murder. The Palestinian-produced 93-minute documentary film offers footage of Rachel describing Israeli human rights violations against the Palestinian population. Sponsored by Palestine Online Store Free admission, open to the public.
