Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin responded to a woman who exposed herself on the symbol of the menorah in the square in front of the Knesset, during the protest tonight (Tuesday-Wednesday).
“Shame,” Levin wrote on Facebook. “I stand for the right of every person to protest, demonstrate and express his opinion, but there is a difference between legitimate protest and contempt for the symbols of the state. No country in the world allows its symbols to be so degraded.”
“I expect law enforcement to act immediately to prosecute the protester, not only for the sake of punishment but especially for the sake of the educational and civilian message that must be sharp and clear.”
Last night, dozens of organizations demonstrated in Jerusalem against the government’s handling of the corona crisis and its handling of the economic crisis, including restaurateurs who oppose the government’s proposed closure of restaurants, and self-employed people who protest the lack of financial support and postponement of promised grants.

At the same time, hundreds of activists demonstrated outside the prime minister’s residence on Balfour Street, with two demonstrations taking place on both sides of the street: one of the “black flags” protest calling on Prime Minister Netanyahu to resign following indictments against him, and the other of right-wing activists expressing support for the prime minister.
“Under the auspices of the Corona, the defendant’s government is trying to carry out an attack on democracy,” said the organizers of the demonstration against Netanyahu. “A government led by a criminal defendant has no public legitimacy to undermine democratic proceedings. This is a bad law that must be stopped.”
Activists from the Independence Protest, who marched toward the Knesset, also joined the protests in Balfour. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck, and marched on a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck.
“The police reiterate that they allow freedom of expression and protest, along with maintaining public order,” the police clarified. “We remind organizers and demonstrators that the protest takes place in the shadow of the spread of the corona virus, and we call on all participants to adhere to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health, wear masks and maintain social distance in a way that does not endanger the health of other participants and police.”
