Frishman Beach Protest - הפגנה בחוף פרישמן ת"א 6.3.09

Friday’s protest was a huge success!  Despite the heat over a 100 people showed up to protest the pollution that has closed Tel Aviv and Herzliya’s beaches for over two weeks.  A new member of Knesset, Nitzan Horowitz, from Meretz joined us to show his support as did veteran Knesset Member and environmental advocate Ophir Pines-Paz from Labor.

A number of groups joined us in support, including the surfing school TopSea that is based on Tel Aviv’s Gordon Beach.
