10 Olympia-Rafah Solidarity Mural Project Detail in Olympia, Washington

These symbolic leaves growing from an olive tree is part of a 4,000 square foot Olympia-Rafah Solidarity Mural Project on the Labor Temple building in downtown Olympia. It recognizes the political struggles within Rafah, a city in the Gaza Strip, Palestine. The art memorializes Rachel Corrie. She was killed there in 2003 by an Israeli bulldozer during a military occupation. She was also a resident of Olympia, Washington. On a cell phone, you can hear each artist explain the significance of their leaf. There are 150 leaves. An identical mural was created along the restricted boarder of Gaza.
