Hundreds of people protested the Prawer Plan, calling for the relocation of about 30,000 Beduins to recognized villages, in front of the Beersheba courthouse on Thursday.

The protest was attended by MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) and MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al).

"Arabs in the Negev were here, living here, we didn't come in boats or planes," Tibi stated at the protest.

Tibi decried the demolition of Beduin homes and "arbitrary" laws.
