On Sunday morning, March 4, the activists of the party «Yesh Atid» headed by the movement’s leader, Yair Lapid held in tel Aviv protest against the adoption of the law, which they called an act of «evading military service». This law is trying to promote the ultra-Orthodox parties, and in the moment around him erupted a coalition crisis.
The protest was held at the train station «tel Aviv Savidor Merkaz».
Activists handed out leaflets and awareness materials.
«After the adoption of the «law shops», it was the turn of the law on evasion of service in the IDF. This law is insulting to the troops for insulting the state and insulting to the Torah. In no place of Scripture does it say that you can send others instead of himself on the battlefield. Nowhere is it written that it is possible to evade national service in MADA (ambulance service «Magen David Adom»), or aid to the disabled and the elderly. Haredim are simply using the weakness of Netanyahu and trying to crush the secular and traditional population of the country,» said Yair Lapid.
