one of the many Rachel Corrie rememberance events across the country

*/Rachel, An American Conscience/*
On March 16^th , 2003, an Israeli soldier driving a bulldozer 2-stories 
high crushed to death 23-year old Rachel Corrie, an American student and 
non-violent human rights activist. According to numerous witnesses and 
photographic documentation, she was killed intentionally.
Rachel and a handful of others practicing Gandhian nonviolence in the 
Gaza Strip had been pleading with Israeli soldiers for 2 hours not to 
destroy the home of a Palestinian physician and his family.
The US has yet to condemn this atrocity by an 'ally' who receives more 
US funding than any other nation on earth, well over $10 million per day.
The US media have yet to accord this horror the attention it would 
normally get. There were *NO stories* about the memorial service in Gaza 
that was broken up and an Israeli tank -- while the bulldozer drove 
exultantly by. There were *NO stories* about the Israeli forces blocking 
the ambulance carrying her remains from exiting Gaza. *NO stories* about 
Rachel's grieving parents and siblings. *NO STORIES*.
This film contains interviews and footage of Rachel Corrie in Palestine.

Why should YOU care? It's your money that pays for the occupation &
illegal Israeli settlements.

"People are scared in the U.S. to say 'wrong is wrong,' because the
pro-Israeli lobby [AIPAC] is powerful---very powerful. Well, so what?
For goodness sake, this is God's world. We live in a moral universe. The
Apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists."
