Sep. 5 - Oct. 21, Haifa: Corrie Trial Help Needed
CALL TO ACTION: CORRIE TRIAL RESUMES IN HAIFA, ISRAEL

SEPTEMBER 5-OCTOBER 21

As many of you know, a civil lawsuit in the case of our daughter Rachel Corrie commenced in Haifa District Court in March 2010. Our family presented its witnesses during this first half of the trial.

On September 5, 2010, the trial resumes in Haifa and will continue until October 21. In this phase, the state will present its witnesses. Thirteen affidavits have been submitted, including those of the bulldozer driver who ran over Rachel and other military personnel who were involved in the incident.

Our family found enormous support in the strong presence of human rights activists, legal observers, and other friends in the courtroom throughout the initial portion of the trial. We hope that some of you are able to attend during this second half as well. Not only is it encouraging to us to see supporters in the courtroom, but it also sends the message that Rachel�s case continues to be closely monitored and that truth, justice and accountability matter to everyone who has been touched by the occupation, be they Palestinians, Israelis or internationals.

Many thanks to the volunteer translators who generously supported us in court in March. We are again seeking help from those fluent in Hebrew and English who can help us follow the upcoming witness testimonies and court proceedings. If you are available to help translate on any of the dates below, please contact Jen Marlowe at donkeysaddle@gmail.com.

Dates for Corrie Trial
September 5, 6, 21
October 7, 17, 18, 21
All days are currently scheduled from 9:00-16:00 at the Haifa District Court (12 Palyam St) with the honorable Judge Oded Gershon presiding.

Please check www.rachelcorriefoundation.org the evening before a court date for any changes to the schedule.

Thank you once again for all your support over the past seven years, and in advance of your help during this next stage of our pursuit for justice and accountability. We look forward to connecting with you in September and October in Haifa.

Respectfully,
Cindy and Craig Corrie
