Protest TONIGHT! Join the Fight for Our Rights!

Following our protest campaign against the imminent shutdown of the 4 biggest visa departments in Israel, and due to the exhaustion of all other protest means, the Israeli Association for International Couples is escalating the protest campaign and announces a demonstration tonight!

Join us tonight in Petach Tikva in a demonstration of the strength of the community of international couples in Israel!

Join us in our fight for our rights as international couples, and show the authorities cannot just decide to neglect us!

Join the calling out of our fellows, the couples who are going to be directly affected by the shut down.

We can assure you, that we have done everything in our power to avoid a demonstration. We have contacted the minister and PIBA personnel by both official and unofficial ways, we have alerted parliament members, and the media about the unprecedented policy that WILL harm the rights of many Israeli citizens and their family members.

We still keep pushing on the legal, bureaucratic and the media fronts – but it’s time to take it one step up on the community effort. Because the images of people in the streets, fighting for their rights, mean much more than words on paper.

The demonstration is going to be peaceful and in accordance with the law. Attendees are required to comply with instructions of the authorities and the organizers.

We encourage you to make or print signs and bring any demonstration equipment you have.

Please invite your friends and family!

Do you know someone in the media? Please notify them of the protest!

We would like to end the post with the powerful poem by Pastor Martin Niemöller, First they came:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

See you there! ✊✊✊
