Human Rights March: Wide Awake.

Friday, December 10th 10:30am. Habima Theater to Rabin Square. Tel Aviv.

This year, on International Human Rights Day, December 10, we will march again in Tel Aviv and demand that civil liberties and human rights be safeguarded. Join us in protest of the waves of racism. The occupation. The growing social economic gaps. The violence against women. The threats to our freedom of speech.

The Movement for Human Rights and Democracy in Israel is Up and Ready.

Looking closely you couldn’t miss it: The growing and worrying anti-democratic trend spreading across Israel has encountered fierce resistance from the country’s resilient civil society. These are hard times, and there are more difficult challenges ahead of us – but the sweeping movement for human rights and democracy is gaining momentum, and is determined more than ever to turn the tide.

Last December marked Israel’s first-ever Human Rights March, which brought together more than one hundred organizations and thousands of optimistic and strong-willed activists to the streets, marching side by side for the first time.

This year, on International Human Rights Day, December 10, we will march again in Tel Aviv and demand that civil liberties and human rights be safeguarded. Join us in protest of the waves of racism. The occupation. The growing social economic gaps. The violence against women. The threats to our freedom of speech.
Come and march together with us to make our voices heard, to show our strength.

The Association for Civil Rights in Israel
