African Refugees in Israel Protest

Some 1,300 people rally in Tel Aviv against plan to set up detention facility for infiltrators near Israel-Egypt border. 'Netanyahu, don't be a racist,' they chant. Schoolchildren join march, say 'refugees have rights too'

Friday morning December 24th 2010 on Rothchild Blvd. in Tel Aviv African refugees alongside Israelis protest the government’s lack of a cohesive policy regarding the handling of these “immigrants”. It is because of the Netanyahu governments lack of a policy that has lead to this present crisis. These demonstrations in support of African refugee rights have been building for sometime now as the Government is unable to deal with any serious issue until it becomes a full blown crisis. People wave signs “Equal Rights for Refugees”, ” We want Protection”, Freedom for All in God’s Land”, and No More Detention”.
