Ben Gvir: You can protest Thursday, but we won’t tolerate ‘anarchy’

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir says at a press conference alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that authorities will not block anti-government protests planned for Thursday, but won’t allow “anarchy or incitement.”

“We will fight for your right to protest, your right to yell, but we won’t tolerate incitement, sedition or harm to the state of Israel,” he says.

Ben Gvir, whose ministry post gives him control over the police, has consistently described protesters as spreading anarchy, and is seen as behind officers stepping up the use of force against protesters who have held weeks of major demonstrations against plans to curtail judicial powers.
