The Israel Business Forum, which represents most workers in the private sector in Israel from 200 of the country’s largest companies, says employees will be permitted to participate in a protest in Jerusalem that is scheduled to start this evening and will continue till Wednesday, without sanctions.

“This is an emergency for Israel and those who are interested should be allowed to participate in the democratic act,” the forum says in a statement.

Each company in the forum will set the terms for its own workers.

In addition, dozens of tech firms have also said their employees can join the protests without sanctions.

The organizers of the demonstration against the Netanyahu government are demanding elections, the cancellation of the Knesset recess scheduled to start on April 7, and the return of all hostages that remain in Gaza.
