Rachel's Words heard in NYC on March 22: Media Coverage

ISM-NYC | Rachel Corrie's legacy just might prove that the pen is mightier than the sword. Despite the cancellation of a theater production based on the writings of the late human-rights activist, some 1,200 people packed into Harlem's Riverside Church Wednesday night for an alternate production - pulled together in two weeks by friends and supporters -- that celebrated Corrie's life and protested perceived censorship.

"This is a powerful outcry, not just by people who love and know Rachel and know the work in Palestine, but anybody who champions free speech and who champions a plethora and diversity of ideas and opinions," said Adam Shapiro, co-founder of the International Solidarity Movement, to which Corrie belonged.

Pace U Students Win Victory Against Expulsion, Pace Reaffirms Ban on Free Speech, Press, & Assembly

Brian Kelly | If the university’s repression has reaffirmed anything in my mind is it that battles are won through direct struggle and unified efforts of a strong, grassroots, and democratic anti-war and progressive movement. Those that control society divide us and repress us because they know we have the truth on our side. It is their fear of that truth that is our greatest strength. We must remain united against repression and continue to seek common ground in our struggle to end the war on Iraq, and prevent future atrocities of the American-led, corporately funded war machine. more...  0 Comments
