Communist Party of Israel: The Democratic Camp in Israel against fascism

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, in front of the Likud Headquarters (Metzudat Zeev) 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 Israel 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 government is heading.
