Anti-racism group holds counterprotest

Anti-racism group Tag Meir is holding a counterdemonstration outside city hall to protest against what it called the “march of hate.”

It says the annual march had become “a focus for extremist groups” and was routinely accompanied by “racist slurs and insults, destruction of property and physical violence against the Palestinian residents of Jerusalem.”

“This year we say a loud and clear ‘No to the violence, the hatred and the incitement’ which threaten the delicate fabric of daily life in Jerusalem,” it says.

The group says its supporters would walk through the Muslim Quarter handing out flowers to residents as a gesture of peace and coexistence.

The group was one of the two NGOs which unsuccessfully petitioned the Supreme Court to change the route of the march.
