This weeks march commemorated the life and death of Rachel Corrie, an ISM activist that was killed while trying to prevent a house demolition.
The protesters, Palestinians Israelis and internationals, were stopped before reaching the fields by the Israeli Occupation Forces. speeches were carried in Hebrew, English, and Arabic, calling on the soldiers to leave the area and go back to their houses. "you can arrest and kill us" said one representative from Beit-Jala, " but you will never be able to kill the spirit of resistance. go home, to your kids and families, let us live. " After about an hour the protest ended and everyone went home.
