'Green Bus' to Block Cabinet Sunday

"Green Protest" activists plan to use a bus to block cabinet ministers from entering the Prime Minister's Office on Sunday in a demonstration to press for implementation of the public-transportation aspects of the Trajtenberg Committee report on socio-economic change. The activists claim that Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz is doing everything he can to prevent their implementation and insisting that his ministry be the only one to open new public transportation.

The activists will ask the ministers when the last was that they took public transportation. They will invite them to board the bus and hold the cabinet meeting there as it goes around the city, with music, megaphones and dancing at stoplights.
