Thousands in Jerusalem protest racism against Ethiopian Israelis

In a demonstration in Jerusalem on Wednesday, 5,000 people protested against racism against the Ethiopian community in Israel. The protesters, who marched in front of the Knesset, were holding signs that read “Blacks and Whites – We’re all Equal”, “Social Justice,” “Our Blood is Only Good for Wars.” The demonstration follows last week’s statement by the Immigrant Absorption Minister Sofa Landver who said that Ethiopian immigrants should be grateful for what they have received from the Israeli government.
