Activists from around the globe are planning to go to Judea and Samaria to participate in a joint bus ride throughout the area between September 23 and October 1. So far, they are in the process of raising funds through donations. The event was initiated by the "Freedom Theater" in the Jenin refugee camp, and its objective is to present the situation [in Judea and Samaria] through personal stories. Among the initiative's supporters are BDS activists and activists from the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and the Free Gaza Movement (FGM), two prominent networks in the campaign to delegitimize Israel.
