Activists Protest Yesha Council Decision on Migron

Angry activists are planning to block entrances to the houses of senior officials in the Yesha Council, as well as hire private investigators to follow the officals around, according to a report Sunday by IDF Army Radio. Activists said they will also distribute leaflets calling on the public to "Stop [the] Yesha Council's hegemony in order to prevent the Gush Katif scenario from re-occurring."

The measures are being taken to protest the decision by the Yesha Council leadership to accept a government proposal to abandon the Migron community site and move its 40-plus families to an area closer to Jerusalem.
