On Tuesday, 15
November 2011, six Palestinians stood at the bus stop outside the settlements
of Psagot and Migron, and boarded a bus used by settlers to travel to Jerusalem. When CPTâ€™s Hebron team heard about the
action on the internet, they sent three members to accompany the six Freedom
Riders, as the activists referred to themselves.
Although no law explicitly forbids Palestinians from
boarding the Israeli buses in the West Bank, racial and ethnic discrimination
and the fact that Palestinians are not allowed to travel to Jerusalem where the
Central Bus Station is, create a separate system of transportation that is
off-limits to the Palestinians, but open to Israelis.
