 International Activism: “My Name is Rachel Corrie”
THE ACCOUNT of Rachel Corrie, the 23-year-old American peace activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer as she tried to prevent the flattening of Palestinian homes in the Gaza Strip, has received a bout of mainstream publicity thanks to a new play about her life currently showing in London’s West End.
Corrie certainly is concerned more than most by the world’s injustices, but she also has the obsessions one would expect of others her age—she loves Dali and Zelda Fitzgerald, has contempt for her ex-boyfriend and disapproves of her “Economics-major-high achiever-khaki-and-high-heels-Yalie corporate sister.”
In one of her e-mails to her daughter Corrie’s mother wrote “Palestinians have really been invisible to me.” The same is true for many Britons—but Corrie’s death and the play “My Name is Rachel Corrie” have gone some way in changing that.

 Rachel Corrie, Continued
At the time of Corrie's death (5pm), Smith describes Corrie as "sitting, with arms waving" (no megaphone), and another colleague holding the megaphone from a distance.
Thus, the AP photo and caption fails to note the two most essential factors in determining visibility or lack thereof: 1) Corrie was no longer standing, but had changed to a sitting position, and 2) she was no longer in possession of attention-grabbing megaphone.
When publishing such a photo, AP is obligated to explain details of chronology; in the absence of any information, readers presume that since the bulldozer appears 8-10 feet away from Corrie, the photographer must have snapped the picture moments before the bulldozer hit her.
