More Info
On Tuesday November 15, Palestinians activists will be attempting to board segregated pubic transportation headed to occupied East Jerusalem in an act of civil disobedience inspired by the Freedom Riders of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.

Veolia Transportation, headquartered in France, operates many of the segregated buses that travel in the West Bank and Occupied Territories. Veolia also operates transit services throughout the United States, including for East Bay Paratransit and BART.

Come join us for a peaceful demonstration in solidarity with the Freedom Riders on this day at the Veolia Paratransit office in the East Bay, this Tuesday at noon. Support the Freedom Riders. Let Veolia know segregated buses are wrong, that separate is not equal. Call them at their US headquarters (630-571-7070) or email them at info [at] veoliatransportation.com.
