What Every American Should Know about Israel/Palestine

A heart-rending talk giving by Cindy and Craig Corrie, parents of Rachel Corrie.


Rachel was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer when she attempted to block the path to a Palestinian home that they were trying to destroy.

The Corries spoke at Socialism 2005. This annual conference was held in Chicago from July 1-4, 2005 and attracted over 1000 antiwar activists from throughout the US in addition to many international guests. It was sponsored by the Center for Economic Research and Social Change, publisher of the International Socialist Review and Haymarket Books. It was co-sponsored by the International Socialist Organization, publisher of Socialist Worker. Links to the organizations and speakers can be found at the conference website, www.socialismconference.org

Cindy Corrie also spoke at the conference Rally Against War and Empire. On both occasions, she read aloud a poem written by her daughter about Palestine and the suffering of this occupied people.
