Rachel Corrie play draws protesters from StandWithUs

Activists from the pro-Israel group StandWithUs have protested outside San Francisco’s Magic Theatre the past two Sundays at performances of “My Name Is Rachel Corrie,” a one-woman play recounting the life and death of the 23-year-old American activist who was a member of the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement.

Corrie was killed in 2004 when she stood in front of an armored Israel Defense Forces bulldozer during a confrontation between Israeli soldiers and ISM activists.

The StandWithUs demonstrators said in a release that they were protesting because the play “leaves the victims of the campaign of Palestinian terror invisible.”

The play closes on May 14.
