In Memory of Rachel Corrie: Caterpillar Defence under siege

16-03-2005 09:51

Remembering Rachel Corrie
Today, March 16 2005, marks the second anniversary of Rachel Corries death. Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist, was murdered by an Israeli soldier driving an armoured Caterpillar D9 bulldozer. She was trying to prevent a pharmacist’s home in Gaza being demolished. Last year 13 human rights protestors walked straight into Caterpillar defence industries in Shrewsbury and asked workers to observe a 3 minute silence in memory of Rachel. The workplace was subsequently shut down.

Human rights protestors have this morning returned to Caterpillar Defence Industries armed with War on Want’s “Caterpillar: The Alernative Report”. The gates all around the factory are shut and no traffic is being permitted to leave or enter the factory. The human rights protestors are currently reading the War on Want alternative report on Caterpillar through the gates to employees and security. Caterpillar Defence industries is effectively under siege this morning.
