March 20: End Wars and Occupations Protest in DC, SF or LA!

Seven years ago today, 23 year-old Rachel Corrie of Olympia, Washington was crushed to death by a Caterpillar D-9R bulldozer driven by an Israeli soldier. Rachel was
part of an International Solidarity Movement group trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian pharmacist's home in Rafah, Gaza.

Seven years later, Rachel's memory is still vibrant and her family is still fighting for answers. Rachel's parents and sister are currently in Israel participating in a civil case against the state of Israel for intentional and unlawful killing and gross negligence in Rachel's death. In addition to seeking accountability for Rachel's death through the Israeli court system, the Corrie family has requested that we support Rachel's vision of freedom for Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip by participating in a national call-in dayto the White House.

Please honor the request of this bereaved family and do the following:

§ Call the White House at 202-456-1111

§ Urge Special Envoy for Middle East Peace George Mitchell to visit Gaza and demand that the United Statesbreak the blockade of Gaza by providing immediate humanitarian aid and building materials.

§ Click [] here []
to report back [] to us about your call.

You can also send the White House an email making these demands, but truth be told, phone calls are taken more seriously.

Congressman Brian Baird, whose constituents include Rachel's parents Cindy and Craig, has already sent a letter to President Obama requesting that the United States break the siege of Gaza. Click []
