Mounted officers begin to corral protesters who broke on Tel Aviv’s Ayalon Highway, as traffic stands still behind them.
Protesters chant “we’re not afraid” and “democracy.”
The police open a lane to let cars pass by protesters, after being trapped for over half an hour.
As a protester is taken into custody, the crowd rushes toward police.
Police also get into a pushing match with independent journalist and activist Orly Barlev, who films the officers trying to remove a woman seated in the middle of the highway.
