Conditions go from bad to worse. Jews, Israeli Arabs, and Palestinians suffer.
Last summer, social justice protests erupted. Hoped for change never came. Promises made were broken. Betrayed Israelis demand rights they’ve been denied.
In May, they drafted a global manifesto. A social justice covenant followed. More on them below.
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) explained the problem, saying:
“In the last two decades, the Israeli government has cut budgets and enacted a policy of extreme privatization. The State has dramatically withdrawn from its responsibility to provide housing, healthcare, education, employment and social welfare.”
As a result, vital social services eroded. Others ended entirely. Equity and justice were spurned. Ordinary Israeli Jews are affected. Arabs are harmed most of all.
