This poster commemorates and celebrates solidarity activist Rachel Corrie. This brave young woman died while defending a Palestinian home from demolition by the Israeli Defense Forces in March, 2003. Her name became known around the world amongst anti-Israeli-apartheid activists and others.
The words in this poster come from Rachel’s last emails home to the United States.
A multi-color screen print, this poster about strength, dignity and sacrifice belongs on many a solidarity activist’s wall.
“My Palestinian friends are a good example of how to be in it for the long haul. I know that the situation gets to them… I am nevertheless amazed at their strength in being able to defend such a large degree of their humanity – laughter, generosity, family time – against the incredible horror occuring in their lives and against the constant presence of death… I spent a lot of time writing about the disappointment of discuovering the degree of eveil of which we are still capable.
I should at least mention that I also discovering a agree of strength and basic ability for humans to remain human in the direst of circumstances – which I also haven’t seen before. I think the word is dignity.”
