Follow up to Friday’s protest!
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.
In a surprise appearance, Critical Mass joined us on their bikes in solidarity as well.
Thank you again to everyone who joined us! Your voice makes a difference!
