Hundreds of IBA Employees Demonstrate at Treasury

Hundreds of employees of the Israel Broadcasting Authority demonstrated, Monday morning outside the Finance Ministry in protest of plans by the Treasury and Communications Ministry to dismiss about 2,000 workers under a reform program that would replace the IBA with a new body.

Protesters gave the demonstration the flavor of soccer's World Cup, whose local broadcasts will primarily be via the IBA.
