[Note: Last year over 10,000 thousands african protester demonstrate for better condition of “Asylum Seeker Status” in Israel. In the video you should recognize that the israeli police were using horses to interrupt the demonstration like that did before in Jerusalem against the african refugee prisoner of “Holot Detention Center”. The Ethiopian Jewish are treated a little bit better than african refugees, but they are still discriminated of their skin colour from many white Jewish people.]
The protest was mostly peaceful during the day, but by nightfall became violent with at least 20 officers hurt and “multiple protesters” arrested, Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
Protesters threw rocks and bottles at officers in riot gear. Police deployed officers on horseback and used stun grenades to try and control the crowds in central Tel Aviv. Local media reported protesters tipped over a police vehicle and set fires near city hall.
Channel 2 TV said the protesters came from all over the country.
“I am here to fight for our rights,” a woman named Batel from the northern city of Nazareth Illit told the station.
“I don’t want to be beaten by police,” said the 21-year- old, who didn’t give her last name. “My parents didn’t immigrate here for nothing. I want equality.”
