Saturday marked the 10-year anniversary of the killing of the U.S. peace activist Rachel Corrie. A 23-year-old college student, Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza on March 16, 2003. She was standing in front of a Palestinian home to help prevent its demolition. An Israeli court rejected a wrongful death suit brought by Corrie’s family last year, saying Corrie was at fault for her own death. On Saturday, vigils were held in Corrie’s hometown of Olympia, Washington, and in Rafah, where she was killed. In a video statement, Rachel’s mother, Cindy Corrie, urged supporters to pressure the Obama administration to drop its backing of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Cindy Corrie: "Tell President Obama that he must insist that our funding not be used for home demolitions, for settlement building and for oppression of a civilian population. Tell President Obama that our tax dollars must be used lawfully in the name of peace, rather than to fuel conflict. And tell President Obama that equality, equal rights for Palestinians, is the path to peace." Cindy y Craig Corrie, los padres de Rachel Corrie, quien murió hace diez años, el 16 de marzo de 2003, en Gaza mientras mientras protegía la vivienda de una familia palestina para impedir su demolición. El Presidente Obama viajará a Israel el próximo miércoles. Muchas gracias por ver este reporte de Democracy Now! su informativo independiente diario.
