We didn't expect to see riot control horses and riot police at the Teachers Demonstration last night.

It was rather unnerving for some of us.


It helped to disguise ourselves.

We joined teachers from all over the country protesting the proposed "reforms," and G-d wasn't forgotten.


Just because they call it "reform," doesn't mean it's good.  It's just a euphemism.


As you can see, I was dressed to demonstrate in orange, but I added a red "protest shirt" to show that I was a teacher, not that I can dress like that for work.

So far we haven't gone on strike, because the "custom" is that teachers in Judea and Samaria keep their students safe in school, rather than letting them wander.

Honestly, I think that we must strike.  The government isn't offering an improvement.  We're voting again on it.

And in case you're curious, there was no violence at the demonstration.  Having the horses and riot police were a pathetic provocation.
