The protesters, who claimed that they were not against the infiltrators, but in fact against the government, marched from the Kiryat Shalom neighborhood towards the market in the HaTikva neighborhood.
The demonstrators also waved Israeli flags and called for the the dismissal of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
One of the organizers of the demonstration, a member of Tel Aviv's
municipality, Shlomo Mitzlawi, said: "We're not racists, we do not hate
the infiltrators. The aim of every person is to improve the conditions
under which he lives and we understand living conditions in Africa are
much more difficult than in Israel, so normal Africans want to emigrate
to Israel. "
Mitzlawi added that "we are angry that the government allows this irresponsible behavior."
