Freedom for the Freedom Riders! End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine!

On November 15th, a historic group of Palestinian youth Freedom Riders, inspired by the US Civil Rights movement attempted to board segregated buses serving Israeli settlers in the West Bank. Their attempt to exercise their right to liberty and dignity by disrupting the military regime of the Occupation through peaceful civil disobedience was met with violent arrest. Please call on the State Department to end Israel's discriminatory restrictions on freedom of movement and allow the next group of Freedom Riders through.
