Israeli students, academics and artists demonstrated on Tel Aviv's Rothschild Boulevard on Sunday against what they termed as "racist laws" proposed recently in the Knesset and cabinet meetings.

Former MK and education minister Shulamit Alon spoke to the crowd assembled at the demonstrations about how the new proposed laws contradicted the very Zionist values the state had been founded upon.

"All the time we speak about Zionism. The Zionist movement was established in order to found a sovereign state for citizens with full rights," Aloni said.
