Dozens protest in south Tel Aviv against High Court ruling that dismissed amendment allowing detention of migrants for period of up to three years without trial. 'We are refugees in our own neighborhoods,' sign reads

Dozens gathered at a south Tel Aviv street corner in protest of the High Court ruling that the amendment to the Prevention of Infiltration Law that allows the detention of infiltrators for up to three years without trial is unconstitutional.


The protesters were blocking the road at the corner of Hahagana and Etzel streets. Police forces have arrived at the scene. No arrests were made.

Protesters cried out "High Court judges sold us out."


Former MK Michael Ben Ari, known for his campaigns to promote the deportation of migrants back to their home countries attended the protest, but was received with ambivalence. Several of the protesters accused him of inciting hate.


Emanuel, one of the protesters, told Ynet: "I've been carrying pepper spray with me at all the time, because I've been attacked before… I'm scared to walk out at night. The High Court maybe right from a legal point of view, but the judges should drop by and see how hard it really is.


"We have no choice but to take to the streets," said Shlomo Maslawi, who heads the south Tel Aviv neighborhood committee. "The government is blaming the High Court for this, but we don’t care. All we want is a solution, and there isn’t one in sight."
