Rabbi Noa Sattath: We NGOs called ‘enemies of the state’ will defend our rights
7th episode of ToI’s new podcast miniseries ‘Israel’s Judiciary: Reform or Ruin?’ takes a nuanced journey into looming legislation that could alter country’s checks and balances
Is Israeli democracy in danger? A proposed High Court override clause has many concerned about a possible tyranny of the majority. Join us as a diverse set of legal experts discuss with ToI editors what’s currently at stake.
In this seventh episode of our limited series podcast, Noa Sattath, the Executive Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), speaks on how minorities have utilized the High Court to broaden their civil rights. She says she is often disappointed by rulings, but staunchly defends the right to seek them.
Sattath spoke at a Times of Israel live-streamed event on December 15 at the IDI in Jerusalem on the topic of judicial reform.
In this episode, which is a session from that event, Times of Israel editor David Horovitz introduces Sattath and asks some follow-up questions.
Future episodes will include remarks from other speakers about specific cases of using a tactic of strategic litigation to broaden human rights.
