Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government is stifling the right to protest, Meretz MKs said on Sunday, following the weekend’s clashes between police and social justice demonstrators.

“We have become a police state, in which the government uses the police as a political weapon to silence criticism,” Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On charged. “This is behavior that suits a banana republic, not a democratic state.”

Though Gal-On condemned the vandalism by rioters, saying there is “no justification for violence, which begets more violence,” she said her party would reconsider its partnership with Tel Aviv mayor Ron Huldai in city council.
