The Olympian reported about 100 people gathered Saturday in Sylvester Park, holding signs showing support for the family of the Olympia activist killed after standing in front of an Israeli military bulldozer.
The 23-year-old had traveled to the Middle East with the International Solidarity Movement and was acting as a human shield to try to stop Israeli soldiers from destroying Palestinian homes and farms.
Corrie's mother, Cindy, spoke at the rally, saying it was important to keep the memory of her daughter's actions alive.
The Corries have sued to hold Israel responsible for their daughter's death. After failing at the lower court level, the case has been appealed.
