The Ra’anana municipality is barring people who intend to protest against the government’s judicial overhaul this evening from carrying a giant replica of the Declaration of Independence, the Haaretz daily reports.
The protest is one of many planned for Independence Day eve. Copies of the declaration, along with Israeli flags have been a mainstay of the months-long protests.
Ra’anana municipality tells Haaretz that the request to march holding a 25-meter-long, 6-meter-wide declaration, to be signed by the members of the public, was rejected by the city engineer for safety reasons.
The city says it has no opposition to the declaration and intends to hang one from city hall.
