Protesters from Israel's social mass protests, known as J14, publish an unofficial list of demands, excluding Palestinian citizens of Israel.
=====
Last week an unofficial group of protesters released an 11 page
document to the media with a list of demands. The press conference was
held after five weeks of social protests in Israel as part of a movement that
started on July 14. While the document listed the end of privatization
policies as well as housing, education, health care, and taxation reforms,
it did not include previously discussed points about the rights of
Palestinian citizens of Israel that make up a fifth of the population. The
Real News' Lia Tarachansky teamed up with Ha'aretz journalist David
Sheen during last Saturday's protests to talk to demonstrators about why
in the fight for social justice they are avoiding speaking about equal rights
to all citizens of Israel, let alone the occupation of the Palestinian
territories. Tarachansky also interviewed +972 Magazine's Joseph Dana
and Muhammad Jabali, an activist who, part of the J14 movement, set up
protest tents in the mixed Israeli-Palestinian city of Yafa.
