Anti-government protester confronts Minister Akunis at LA swimming pool

An anti-government protester confronts Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis as he eats a meal by the swimming pool of a Los Angeles hotel.

In a video posted to social media, the activist shouts at Akunis, “It is still an embarrassment” as security guards try to keep him away.

“You stole, you lied, we will not leave you alone,” he shouts.

Switching to English, he calls on Americans eating with Akunis to “educate yourselves.”

“This is not a chichi event, we are about to lose the country.”

Akunis pulled out of a Los Angeles event yesterday amid a protest at the venue against the government’s contentious planned judicial overhaul.
