PHOTOS: Palestinian ‘Freedom riders’ board settler-only bus in Occupied West Bank
please find below photos from the activists at ActiveStills of the Palestinian Freedom Ride. This photo essay was first published on +972 Magazine.
On November 15, six Palestinian activists boarded
an Israeli bus in the West Bank in effort to call attention to Israel’s
policies of segregation and restricted freedom of movement for
Palestinians. Drawing inspiration from the U.S. Civil Rights Movement’s
“Freedom Rides” of the 1960s, the activists rode the bus before being
forcibly removed by IDF soldiers.
