The struggle goes on. A group of residents submitted more than 1,200 objections, including some 700 written objections, to the district planning and construction committee regarding the planned Blue Line route of the light rail segment along Emek Refaim Street. The residents are manning stands on the street on every Friday morning, encouraging passersby, even those from outside the neighborhood, to add their signatures in opposition.
