"Today is the second anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie. On March 16, 2003, the American peace activist was killed when she attempted to block an Israeli military bulldozer from demolishing the home of a Palestinian doctor in Gaza."
"Rachel Corrie's family is suing the State of Israel and the Israeli military. In the lawsuit -which was filed in Haifa Tuesday- the family is asking for roughly $324 thousand in direct damages, as well as punitive damages. In a separate lawsuit, the Corrie family is also suing Caterpillar, Inc. -the US firm that manufactured the bulldozer that crushed Rachel. The federal suit alleges that Caterpillar violated international and state law by providing specially designed bulldozers to the IDF that it knew would be used to demolish homes and endanger people."
