Rights & COVID-19: Protest

As a protest formed outside of the Knesset during the HCJ hearings, police stopped protesters without explanation. We wrote a letter to the head of police immediately to allow the protest to take place. Emergency regulations published after this incident permitted protests and demonstrations as an exception to the emergency restrictions of being a certain distance from one’s home (19-03-2020).

ACRI successfully used this precedent to:

  • appeal to the Eilat Police Department to allow a demonstration of animal rights activists (2-4-2020);

  • appeal to the Attorney General about the police not having the authority to impose fines on protesters (2-4-2020);

  • to the Deputy AG against invalid restrictions on the freedom of protest in the Public Health Order (13-4-2020);

  • and to the Department of Justice about restrictions to demonstrate in Shiekh Jarah (19-4-2020).
