(en) Israel, Tel-Aviv, !st of May demonstration of the anarchists.

Date Wed, 02 May 2007 08:56:21 +0300

It took about an hour till 100 or so local anarchists converged in Dizengof round plaza at center of Tel Aviv. as the presence of police was too big, we moved in small groups to Meir garden, in hope to get rid of most of them. However, when we wanted to start the march from there, police blocked our way. After a while, few of us started to exit the garden around their block and they stopped their efforts. May be there was change of orders. (May be as the result of a big scandal in the media about the harsh suppression of the day before demonstration of the striking students.)
We started the march mainly on the pavement but also from time to time, when the pavement was narrow, people used the road too, while tree bicycles towing small courts with metal barrels used as drums travel in the road adjacent to us. From time to time policeman approach me and so happen to others who infringed the road, asking politely to return to the pavement....

During the march people distributed fliers and conversed with curious people. We also chanted and one chant was very popular and repeated many times: "They fuck prostitutes for money but they fuck workers for free".

When we arrived at the main intersection, we converged for a while, and turned to the Shenkin "leftist" street. As there was a service car blocking the movement we passed the cars using the pavement and found an empty road...

The next half kilometer was a very surrealist phenomena. About hundred anarchists with our flags, placards and banners, with our drums and chanting, marching in the middle of the road, with three stars police officer in the head... along the way three other policeman from those accompanying us joined him, as if they are leading the march.

Near the end of the road we turned to another one leading to the stock exchange "bursa" building but just when nearing it we turned again.

changing from street to street, sometimes disturbing a bit the traffic - mainly in the intersections we did a two hours march till we arrived at the sea shore.

More than half the people dropped out along the route. Many of those remained opted suggested to cool of in the sea... It seems the demonstration was at its end and I dropped too.
