Leftist Activist Fined for Noise Pollution in Protest

A leftist who used a megaphone, last week, during a demonstration against the Elad organization, was fined 365 shekels by an inspector from the Nature and National Parks Authority, according to a Sunday report by the Ha'aretz daily.

Elad acts to strengthen Jewish ties to the Ir David community, south of the Western Wall, just outside Jerusalem's Old City. The demonstration took place in the nearby national archaeological park.
