2,000 arrive for start of TA Human Rights March

Nearly 2,000 people arrived Friday morning for the start of the third annual Human Rights March in Tel Aviv.
The march is being organized for the third year in a row by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) in collaboration with dozens of other local human rights organizations. Organizers say the recent social justice movement that swept the country over the summer, bringing hundreds of thousands of Israelis into the streets, will give the march added relevance.
Two dozen counter-protesters from the right-wing nationalist Im Tirzu organization held a counter demonstration.
