Fighting to Save Israeli Democracy
The March On Jerusalem
As Netanyahu and his extremist government forge ahead with the regime coup, Israelis have intensified their massive nationwide protests with a full-blown pilgrimage to the holy city of Jerusalem that has one goal: Saving Israel’s Democracy.
Over the next few days citizens will join in this grand pilgrimage and march on foot to the Knesset, arriving just in time for the 2nd and 3rd readings of the anti-democratic bill to abolish the Reasonableness Doctrine - which if passed, will finalize the legislative process and this outrageous bill will become law.
In addition to those who have chosen to march, thousands have already volunteered and brought food, cold water, and other essential gear to the marching protesters. They have set up full tent cities with mattresses, offered rides to those seeking a break from the heat, and opened up their homes for anyone needing a bed or a shower. It is truly an amazing experience.
Join the march if you can! Maps and locations will be posted updating you on where and when you can join in, or just stop by to say hello. And most importantly, we need you all there, with us, outside the Knesset, to stop this corrupt government from taking away our democracy.
Look for the hashtag #MarchOnJerusalem
