Right-wing government seeks to restrict protests in Israel

Right-wing government seeks to restrict protests in Israel

Tel Aviv, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) Israel's ultra-right-wing government is working on a new law to further restrict protests in the country, the public radio station KAN revealed today.

According to the source, the law would require police permits for any demonstration involving more than 100 people and would allow officers to expel people who ‘could disturb the peace’.

Officers would also be authorized to impose fines of up to five thousand sekels (about US$1,466) on those who disobey police instructions or fail to leave the area after being asked to do so.

The initiative will force any protest planned in front of the house of any public figure to be held at a minimum distance of 100 meters from it.

Sources from the ministries of National Security and Justice told Kan that they are working together on the project.

A week ago, the head of National Security, the far-right Itamar Ben Gvir, called on police to arrest those who block roads or cause disturbances during marches, amid a growing popular mobilization against a planned justice reform pushed by the government.

Last Saturday tens of thousands of people gathered in this capital to denounce the initiative promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration, and tomorrow’s rally is expected to be even larger.
