The International Solidarity Movement Support Group in
Northern California invites you to join us at the
third annual Rachel Corrie Memorial.

We will celebrate the life and activism of Rachel
Corrie, a 23-year-old ISM volunteer who was killed by
Israeli Occupation Forces March 16, 2003 as she
nonviolently resisted the demolition of a family home
in the Gaza Strip in Palestine. Let us join together
to stand in solidarity with Palestinians and all
peoples struggling against ethnic cleansing and
oppression and for social justice. The objective is
to raise awareness of the common cause between global
and domestic issues of social justice, with the issue
of Palestine as a persistant example of what is being
done to disenfranchised populations everywhere.

This event is accessible for disabled persons in
wheelchairs.
There will also be ASL interpretation for the hearing
impaired.
