Israel's fourth annual Human Rights March was set to take place in central Tel Aviv Friday morning, concluding with a free concert.
The march was scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. at Habima Square, and conclude at nearby Rabin Square two hours later with performances by a number of artists.
Organizers described the event as an "annual assembly of thousands of people and more than 130 organizations and groups that work year-round to promote human rights, social change, equality, and democracy. The march is the place to sound all the different voices that connect for a day to form a joint and brave statement: all human rights, to all human beings, in Israel and in the Occupied Territories."
Streets in the area were closed ahead of the event.
