Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On on Saturday slammed the Israel Police's treatment of social justice protesters on Friday night.

"The Israel Police is behaving as it would in a police state, rather than a democratic state," she said. "It has become a political repressive instrument of the government, against all groups that protest against it. We saw on Rothschild Boulevard how the police are serving the government rather than the law."
