Activists for LGBT rights are protesting outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's official residence in Jerusalem, and in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Karmiel Sunday morning.

The demonstrations mark the beginning of a nation-wide strike in protest against the country's new surrogacy law, passed Wednesday last week, that denies state-supported surrogacy to homosexual couples and single men.

Hundreds of companies and organizations throughout Israel have expressed their support for the strike.
