Israel: Tens of thousands join 'March of Shame' against Netanyahu

Israel, Tel Aviv
December 3, 2017 at 00:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

Tens of thousands of Israelis partook in a "March of Shame" across central Tel Aviv, protesting against legislation that would shield Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from ongoing police investigations over corruption, Saturday.

The march began at 16 Rothschild Street, where the declaration of Israeli independence occurred in 1948. Protesters chanted and held signs reading "Crime Minister" and "shame" amongst others.

The bill which was passed on the first reading is expected to go through a second reading on Monday which would mean that police would be prevented from issuing indictment recommendations during investigations against public figures.

"Our parents and grandparents came to Israel seventy years ago to build a democracy Jewish country, and what they are doing is destroying step-by-step, by making new rules," stated one protester named Michal.

Decenas de miles de israelíes participaron en una "Marcha de la vergüenza" en el centro de Tel Aviv, en protesta por una legislación que de aprobarse protegería al primer ministro israelí, Benjamin Netanyahu, de las continuas investigaciones policiales sobre corrupción, el sábado.

La marcha comenzó en el número de 16 Rothschild Street, donde se produjo la declaración de independencia de Israel en 1948. Los manifestantes cantaron y portaban letreros que decían "Ministro del Crimen" y "vergüenza", entre otros mensajes.

Se espera que el proyecto de ley aprobado en la primera lectura pase por la segunda lectura el lunes, y significaría que la policía no podrá emitir recomendaciones de acusación durante las investigaciones contra las figuras públicas.

"Nuestros padres y abuelos vinieron a Israel hace setenta años para construir un país judío con democracia, y lo que están haciendo es destruirlo paso a paso”, dijo un manifestante de nombre Michal.
