The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Fighting back against Lieberman:
Protest march and demonstration in Tel Aviv
Sat. Jan 15, 7pm from Gan Meir
(Because it is still possible)
The Democratic Camp, including political parties, public organizations and grassroots movements, is organizing to fight back against the governmental attack on Israeli democracy, orchestrated by Foreign Minister Lieberman.
The first public action will be a protest march and demonstration in Tel Aviv, to take place on Saturday night, January 15, 2010. The march will embark at 19:00 from the Gan Meir park on King George Street, Tel Aviv, and culminate with a mass rally at the Tel Aviv Museum Plaza.
The organizers act out of a feeling that this country stands at a critical crossroads. In the coming months it will be decided whether Israel will be a democracy, or will become a pariah, illegitimate state, slipping further and further down the slope towards outright Fascism, where the Lieberman – Netanyahu - Barak government is heading.
