Billy Bragg: The Lonesome Death of Rachel Corrie
Music Video of current condition in Palestine. A song about Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist who was run over by an Israeli bulldozer in 2003
Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 10, 1979 – March 16, 2003) was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) who traveled to the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada. She was killed by an bulldozer operated by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) while attempting to disrupt its actions in order to protect the Palestinian people.
On March 14, 2003, during an interview with the Middle East Broadcasting network, Corrie said:
"I feel like I'm witnessing the systematic destruction of a people's ability to survive ... Sometimes I sit down to dinner with people and I realize there is a massive military machine surrounding us, trying to kill the people I'm having dinner with."
