Anti-overhaul protesters plan to block airport tomorrow ahead of Netanyahu flight

Protesters against the government’s judicial overhaul announce plans to demonstrate at and around Ben Gurion Airport tomorrow afternoon, with the aim of disrupting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s flight to Germany.

The rallies last week forced Netanyahu to take a helicopter from Jerusalem to the airport ahead of his trip to Italy.

The protest organizers say thousands of vehicles will again attempt to drive slowly at the access roads to the airport, causing traffic jams, starting at 12:30 p.m., several hours before Netanyahu’s flight. They note that they won’t disrupt train access.

“The incoming dictator Netanyahu will meet us in every corner, flight or conference he attends,” the organizers say in a statement. “We won’t let him destroy the Zionist vision and turn the State of Israel into a dictatorship.”
