‘Social Protest’ Activists Sue over TA Policy


Activists coordinating the “social protest” in Tel Aviv have filed an appeal to the regional court demanding to be allowed to put up tents. The city of Tel Aviv should be allowed to remove tents that cause a serious disturbance, they said, but not to dismantle any tent put up without authorization.

The activists, represented by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), argued that allowing municipal workers to take down any unauthorized tent would give them undue control over the protest.
