Protesters rally against Netanyahu in New York

Luke Tress is an editor and a reporter in New York for The Times of Israel.

Several dozen demonstrators march on the street outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hotel in New York City.

The New York demonstrators, bolstered by activists who flew in from Israel, carry Israeli flags that say “Free in our land,” a line from the national anthem.

The protesters chant “Government of criminals” and “Democracy or rebellion,” were not afraid,” and “Bibi, Sara, Israel is not Hungary.”

Demonstrators arrived at the scene at around 3 a.m. local time as Netanyahu arrived in the city.

They are affiliated with the expat activist group UnXeptable and Israel-based groups including Brothers in Arms and Pink Front.

There are other protests against Netanyahu scheduled for later today, and throughout the week.
