Tafnit protests business-government relations

Some 20 demonstrators of Uzi Dayan's Tafnit party gathered outside the Herzliya conference on Tuesday protesting what they claimed to be to close of a relationship between capital and politics, as represented by the conference. Dayan stated that nowadays in order to be heard publicly, one must have access to a lot of money, Army Radio reported. He noted the Russian oligarch Arkady Gaidamak as an example; he was expected to speak at the conference later in the day.
