On Saturday 6 June 6,000 people (equivalent of 45,000 in Britain) demonstrated in Tel Aviv against the plan of the new Netanyahu-Gantz coalition government to formally annex large parts of the West Bank to Israel, thus creating a bar against any future Palestinian state being more than a collection of scattered patches of land. Netanyahu has long threatened annexation, and now the government talk of moving on 1 July.
Police initially tried to ban the protest on virus-control grounds, but backed down.
The Joint List of Israeli-Arab parties, the soft-left Meretz, and the grassroots movement Standing Together supported the protest. They need international solidarity.
