Eritrean migrants demonstrated Thursday against Interior Ministry plans for a detention facility in the Negev meant to house thousands of African migrants.

The protest took place at Sarona Park outside the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Protestors held signs reading, "Being black is not a crime," as they chanted "[Interior Minister] Eli Yishai remember your history."
