On November 15th Palestinian activists will reenact the US Civil Rights Movement’s Freedom Rides in the American South by boarding segregated Israeli public transportation in the West Bank to travel to occupied Jerusalem. The only-Jewish buses that operate between settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem is only one form of Apartheid in Palestine.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Rides in the US. On this anniversary Palestinians will take a step to defy Israeli Apartheid laws that rule Palestine. The Apartheid in Palestine includes also only-Jewish neighborhoods from Akka north to Negev south. 90% of the Palestinian land is only accessible to Jewish people according to the law.
The Freedom Riders’ simulation is intended to defy the apartheid system implanted in Palestine. Activists could be arrested for months or years without trial under Israeli military law, they could be abused by Israeli soldiers and attacked by fanatic Israeli settlers.
In Apartheid Israel, Apartheid is Real.
Support ending the Apartheid system in Palestine. Support a one state of equal rights to all its citizens. END APARTHEID
