Some two-dozen of Jerusalem's social activists congregated outside the headquarters of the Israel Broadcasting Authority on Monday to protest the attempted muzzling of Keren Neubach who hosts the daily morning program Seder Yom (Agenda) on Israel Radio's Reshet Bet.

The demonstration was timed to begin with Neubach's opening salvo following the 8 a.m. news bulletin, but with the exception of the first three, demonstrators did not begin to dribble in till after the broadcast had started.

Aged mostly in their late twenties and early thirties, some 25 demonstrators carrying fliers with slogans printed in large type on pastel colored sheets of paper in different hues, formed a circle at the entrance to the building and began chanting protests in two-line rhymes.

Led by Rona Orvara and Nadav Aharoni who armed with megaphones, took turns in leading the chant, the protestors attracted the attention of people both inside and outside the building.

One of the more frequently repeated chants was: "Keren, Keren, al tivchi, Bibi gam dafak oti." (Keren, Keren don’t cry. Bibi screwed me too).
