MK Zandberg: Police Cancellation of Leftist Rally Unacceptable


MK Tamar Zandberg (Meretz) sharply criticized the police decision to not permit a left-wing rally to transpire tonight in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square.

"The decision of the police to cancel tonight's demonstration is totally unacceptable. It means one is not allowed to protest against the war in wartime," she said. 

"These are the very times when police and security forces should be especially stringent about protecting freedom of expression, and not rush to restrict it," the MK added.
