Join Craig and Cindy Corrie, along with IPS fellow Phyllis Bennis, who will be introducing and reading from the just-released book Let Me Stand Alone: the Journals of Rachel Corrie.
This is a collection of writings of the young peace activist/poet/thinker whose death at the hands of an Israeli soldier driving a U.S.-supplied armored Caterpillar bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003 brought new attention and new mobilization to the issue of U.S. support for the Israeli occupation. Before her death at age 23, Rachel had been an inveterate writer, diarist, poet, and communicator. Her book, put together by her family, reverberates with echoes of her long-held belief in the unity of humanity.
