Remembering Rachel Corrie 7-Year Anniversary Memorial & Music with Joe Carr

Austin activist and musician Joe Carr was with Rachel Corrie when she was
crushed to death by an Israeli Military bulldozer as they stood
nonviolently preventing the demolition of Palestinian civilian homes in
Gaza on March 16th, 2003. Today marks the 7-year anniversary of her
murder, and coincides with an ongoing civil trial in Israel for the Corrie
family's wrongful death lawsuit against the Israeli Military.

Joe Carr will share stories, pictures, poetry and music about his
experiences working with the International Solidarity Movement in occupied
Palestine, Rachel Corrie's life and death, updates from the trial, and
information about the local Palestinian-rights movement. His presentation
will be followed by an open-mic speak out session.

Please bring items for a memorial alter, like something that reminds you
of her, Palestine, nature, or anything you think she would have liked or
has spiritual meaning for you.
