Israel becomes a dictatorship this month – huge protest planned Tuesday

If you’ve waiting for the right moment to participate in the protest, now is the time to act. After seven months, the government is poised to push forward with the ‘reasonableness’ bill this week. Israel doesn’t have a written constitution, a second house, or a powerful head of state (America has all three) – the only safeguard against potential government overreach lies in an independent judiciary. Without this crucial element, the government could potentially nullify elections, annex the West Bank without granting voting rights to its Arab citizens, and infringe upon the rights of the LGBTQ+ community and women (you can read more in the excellent coverage by the Times of Israel). We have to take action. There is a huge Day of Resistance planned on Tuesdaycheck out the event on our website, we’ll keep on updating as we get more info.
