Rothschild to hold torchlight vigil instead of protest

August 18, 2011 19:40

The protest movement headquartered on Rothschild Boulevard issued a statement Thursday night that read that on Saturday evening, they will hold a silent, torchlight vigil in central Tel Aviv from the Bima National Theater to the Charles Klor garden, "to show the Prime Minister that even in difficult days like these, he is still responsible for the welfare and health [of the public] just as much as security."

The statement added that once they arrive at the park on the seashore, they will hold discussions and singing, out of "solidarity with the victims of the terror attack. This pain is all of ours, and this protest is all of ours."

In addition, the statement reads "because the people who protest are the same people who suffered this attack from our enemies. This people's demands for serious changes in the daily agenda of this country and for social justice, does not come at the expense of the fight against terror."
