Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid will be the featured speaker at a demonstration Monday outside the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, while it debates a series of resolutions tomorrow condemning Israel.
A coalition of pro-Israel organizations will demonstrate, including Jews and non-Jews from across Europe and from Israel who have come to Geneva to take a stand against what they see as the bias of the UNHRC.
During his remarks, Lapid will call to stop the funding of the council. He intends to lead an effort to re-examine the funding to the council with friends of Israel in the US Congress.
