Freedom’s Riding! Join Us! Whether Birmingham or Jerusalem: SEPARATE is NOT EQUAL
When: November 15, 5:30 PM
Where: 96th Street and Broadway in Manhattan
Why: to show our solidarity with the Freedom Riders of Palestine
On the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Rides that helped de-segregate the Jim Crow South, activists in Palestine are planning to board segregated buses that serve only Jewish settlers in the Occupied West Bank. From Mississippi to Ramallah, join us in saying “Separate will never be equal!”
Our demonstration of solidarity will be part of Jews Say No!'s monthly street action, and we will be joined by our allies from Jewish Voice for Peace-NY, CODEPINK NYC, and WESPAC.
This is part of a nationwide day of solidarity with the Freedom Riders coordinated by Jewish Voice for Peace.
