On August 28th, the Haifa District Court will issue a ruling on Rachel Corrie’s 2003 murder in Gaza. Rachel was crushed to death by a militarized Caterpillar bulldozer while protecting homes from demolition. In collaboration with the Rachel Corrie Foundation, Chicago Divests is asking TIAA-CREF to divest completely from Caterpillar for facilitating the systematic home demolitions Rachel was trying to prevent. We are also asking TIAA-CREF to divest from all other corporations profiting from the occupation of Palestine, including Elbit Systems, Motorola Solutions, Hewlett-Packard, Northrop Grumman, and Veolia.
On August 30th, we will hold a Vigil outside of TIAA-CREF’s Chicago office. We will also deliver a letter and copy of our petition to TIAA-CREF. Help us remember Rachel. Sign our petition, and ask others to remember Rachel by doing the same. You can also help us by attending our August 30th vigil. More details about the vigil below and on facebook.
We hope to see you all there!
