Afraid to protest in person after children were arrested, people in Lod used toys to make their point
The dolls' protest organized by young people in Lod did not require crowd control or corona restrictions. No masks were worn. Yet the police responded, as usual, by gathering up the suspect toys and holding them until further notice.
The protest may have been whimsical, but the subject was not: Stop the bloodbath! If the police are to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem, it is time for them to stop harassing peaceful demonstrators, and to start asking questions, listening to the people living in mixed cities like Lod, finding out who is at risk and why.
