A few dozen protesters held a rally outside the Yarkon district police station in Tel Aviv on Sunday afternoon; to protest what they said was "police brutality" during a hectic rally outside the Tel Aviv municipality last Wednesday in which over 40 people were arrested.

The protest was much smaller in scale and tamer in character than last Wednesday's, and police outside the station mainly just stood and watched the proceedings, occasionally telling protesters to stay out of the street.

Last Wednesday's protest came hours after cleaning crews were sent by the municipality in the middle of the night to clear out the tent city on Rothschild Boulevard, a day after city hall clerks handed out fliers at the tent city saying that residents had until the high holidays at the end of September to clear out. One of the main complaints of protesters on Sunday was that the police on duty at Wednesday's rally reportedly did not wear name tags, supposedly in order to avoid being identified.

One of the protesters, Yoav Reinhorn, was arrested outside the city hall on Wednesday, and on Sunday he walked around the station attempting to hand out roses and lilies to police officers. He had no takers on his first passes, but eventually a few female officers relented and accepted white roses.
