After the delay in the implementation of the legislation – protests against Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv: Hundreds of protesters arrived this evening (Wednesday) near the prime minister’s residence in Balfour and blocked the nearby road.

The organizers of the spontaneous demonstration, protesting against the restrictions on demonstrations, said: “This is a protest against a criminal defendant’s attempt to take democracy hostage to prevent the demonstrations against him in Balfour.”

The Kreim Minister movement stated that “Bibi, even if you limit the demonstrations to one meter and lower the shelter on the whole country, you will not silence us. We will demonstrate against you anytime and anywhere until you leave.”

In the center of Tel Aviv, in recent hours, an illegal protest rally took place without coordination and without police approval. Although this is an illegal procession, the police exercised restraint and allowed the procession to take place, securing its participants and accompanying it along the procession route. Police worked to minimize harm to the public and diverted traffic to alternative routes.

Police said that during the incident some of the procession participants blatantly violated public order and also interfered with police officers in the performance of their duties and even attacked some of the police officers. At this point the police arrested two suspects for assaulting police officers and interfering with the performance of their duties. The two suspects will be brought to the police station for questioning.

Earlier today, Israel Today reported that the meaning of the law passed in the Knesset yesterday, an amendment to the Corona Law, is that the law authorizes and gives the government the opportunity to install regulations that restrict various actions, including demonstrations. The intention is to limit demonstrations to up to 1,000 meters from the house in a gathering of up to 20 people.

However, the very enactment of the law does not prevent demonstrations. What can limit demonstrations are regulations that will be installed by virtue of it, something that has not happened so far. Apart from the possibility of installing such regulations, since according to the transitional provisions of the amendment to the Corona Powers Act, a special state of emergency has been declared, there is a limit of gathering in open space in capsules of up to 20 people.
