Rachel
Corrie
(1979-2003) was an activist and diarist,
part of the pro-Palestinian group International Solidarity Movement. She was
killed in the Gaza Strip, at the age of only 23, while trying to block an
Israeli bulldozer from destroying Palestinian houses.

She became a committed peace activist from
a young age, starting out as a volunteer with the Washington State Conservation
Corps. She acted as a human shield to prevent the Israeli Army from demolishing
houses and was part of the efforts to rebuild the damage. Her death was
extremely controversial, as organizations such as Amnesty International or
Human Rights Watch called for an investigation, but the Israeli government
denied any wrongdoing.

Around 20,000 Israelis gathered alongside African asylum seekers in Tel Aviv to protest against the Israeli government’s policy of deportations and imprisonment of the asylum seekers.

The protest took place in south Tel Aviv, where most of the city’s asylum seekers live, and local residents have long complained about their presence there.

Protesters carried signs reading, “No to deportation,” “We’re all humans” and “Refugees and residents refuse to be enemies.”
