Rachel was working as a peace activist with the International Solidarity Movement in Gaza when she was crushed to death on March 16, 2003 by an Israeli bulldozer as she was protesting the demolition of a Palestinian home.
Earlier this year, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that the Israel military was not responsible for her death and that it was a "regrettable accident."
Home demolitions in Palestine continue. The Occupation of Palestine continues. Injustice, injustice, injustice in Israel/Palestine continues. It is with a heavy heart that I post her words.
