Бойкот на израел и печелещите от окупацията! Boycott israHell and those who profit from occupation!

Rachel Corrie was a 23-year-old American peace activist from Olympia, Washington, who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer on 16 March 2003, while undertaking nonviolent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.
Since her killing, an enormous amount of solidarity activities have been carried out in her name around the world.
Rachel’s journals and emails from her time in Palestine are available in a variety of forms. They have been published in books, turned into plays and dramatic readings, and used around the internet. They are not always reproduced in their entirety and we have collected them here, un-cut, for easier reading. Read Rachel’s emails from Palestine.
I should at least mention that I am also discovering a degree of strength and of basic ability for humans to remain human in the direst of circumstances – which I also haven’t seen before. I think the word is dignity. I wish you could meet these people. Maybe, hopefully, someday you will. - Rachel Corrie, in an email to her mother, February 28 2003

Theater notes New York Times It’s fitting that “THE CLEAN HOUSE” and “MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE” start performances on Thursday, since each play, in very different ways, raises the same question: What took so long?
“My Name is Rachel Corrie” was scheduled to open at the New York Theatre Workshop on March 22nd. Amid political pressure, the play was “postponed indefinitely,” and The “Rachel’s Words” initiative was born. It was made up of a broad spectrum of groups and individuals who believed that Rachel’s words and her message of human rights and justice should be heard. “Rachel’s Words” was an event that took place in New York City’s Riverside Church on March 22, 2006 to keep Rachel’s message form being censored.
