Dozens protest against Iran strike in Tel Aviv

Demonstrators set up protest tent outside defense minister's home in Tel Aviv

Dozens of people demonstrated outside Defense Minister Ehud Barak's home in central Tel Aviv on Tuesday, in what has become a routine of the past couple of weeks. The protesters carried signs which read "No to a war with Iran" and "Commission of inquiry before, not after."


They also set up a tent which they labeled as a "protest tent against the strike in Iran."

"Bibi and Barak's spin could easily drag us into a war," Rotem Melenky, one of the protesters said. "The tent is meant to wake people up. I think the war perpetuates the current relationship between the government and the business tycoons."

Director Rani Blair, one of the leaders of the protest, described Barak as a "lunatic." "We'll sit here until he realizes that the home front isn't ready," he said.


Tamar Zandberg, Tel Aviv city councilwoman on behalf of Meretz, said, "We've been here for 10 days. Every day we see some official speaking out against the strike, we are the voice of the people."
