About 400 people were at the Paris Square in Jerusalem, near the Prime Minister's Residence, on Saturday evening, beginning a march toward Zion Square at the center of town later in the evening. The marchers convened to protest the "soft handling" of haredi rioters by the police. The crowd was comprised of a variety of Jerusalem residents - from secular through traditional to Zionist-religious. Earlier in the day a small-scale haredi protest took place outside the offices of Intel at the Har Hotzvim industrial park, over the semiconductor giant's decision to operate a chip producing facility there during the Sabbath. It was the third of its kind in as many weeks.
