Eyewitness Palestine is co-hosting a talkback after ACT's My Name is Rachel Corrie, this Satruday August 18th in SF. Ashley Malloy revives her award winning national tour of the one person show, My Name is Rachel Corrie, edited from Rachel's emails and journal entries by the late Alan Rickman and editor in chief of The Guardian, Katherine Viner. It chronicles the life of 23 year old American peace activist, Rachel Corrie, who in January 2003 traveled from her home in Olympia, WA to the Gaza strip with the International Solidarity Movement, where she defended Palestinian homes and water resources from being destroyed. On March 16th, 2003, just weeks after her arrival, she was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protecting a host family's home from being destroyed by the Israeli Forces.
