Social justice activists slam police 'intimidation tactics'

Social justice activists have slammed police requests for five members to come in for questioning as intimidation tactics on Tuesday ahead of the start of a summer of planned events.

In recent days, 5 activists had police officers arrive at their homes and issue a request for them to come down to local stations and discuss summer protest plans.

Police released a short statement Tuesday saying that it fully respected the democratic right to hold protests, adding that the only condition was that they were held with approval in accordance with the law.

But Tamir Hgage, 44, of Kfar Saba, one of the activists who received the summons, told The Jerusalem Post he had never broken any past law and always held lawful protests in the dozens of prior events he organized. "This was to scare me," he said.
