Police declared the Tel Aviv solidarity protest for Moshe Silman illegal and threatened arrests after some 200 demonstrators broke through a police line and headed to the Ayalon freeway on Saturday night.
Silman set himself on fire last week during a social justice protest and succumbed to his wounds on Friday at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer where doctors were treating him for burns over the majority of his body.
