Protests emerge as feminist group demands rights for praying women at Western Wall

Haaretz:


At the instruction of their rabbis, thousands of teenage girls from religious high schools around the country gathered at the Kotel, while hundreds of young ultra-Orthodox men tried to break through police barricades to attack the prayer group.

Held at a distance from the woman by security forces, the Haredi men vented their ire on the large group of men who had come out to support the Women of the Wall, including leaders of Israel's Conservative and Reform movements.

Rabbi Gilad Kariv, executive director of the Reform movement in Israel, called the police statement "scandalous" and attributed it to "utter chutzpah."

“The police failed in their duty,” she said. “They weren’t even attempting to protect us. There were thousand... show more
 

Thousands of people protest for Bouteflika's resignation


In a letter published by Algeria's official APS news agency on Thursday, the 82-year-old leader urged "vigilance" against "domestic and foreign" forces that might infiltrate the demonstrations.

The latest trend in toppling autocracies: Allege foreign forces to intervene in their internal affairs to fuel up demonstrations against them. No sense of reflection to examine their work, looking for any reason to detect any flaws. That's how the whole thing started.

The privately owned Arabic-language news website, El Khabar, quoted the public transport body for Algiers as saying that all bus, tram, train and metro services had been suspended ahead of the rally.

Banners at Friday's protest carried slogans saying: "Algeria is a republic, not a kingdom", and "No elections till the gangs are brought down", Reuters reports.

On Saturday, February 9, 2019, during the weekly demonstration of the yellow vests, the anti-capitalist procession (composed largely of activists of the NPA and Ocml-VP) was attacked by a group of people posing as yellow vests wanting to "hunt" the black block.

The group that attacked the procession was 34 people and we were all identified (surname, first name, etc.) .

This aggressor group is composed of:

1. almost all members of " Génération Identitaire " Toulouse

2. one or more members of the OSRE

3. the Lagaf Crew and other far-right hooligans

Former Sri Lankan military attaché arrested for throat-cut gesture


The private prosecution of Brig Priyanka Fernando has degenerated into extraordinary legal confusion, forcing the chief magistrate, Emma Arbuthnot, to take control of the case.

Fernando was filmed making cut-throat gestures aimed at Tamil protesters outside the Sri Lankan high commission in London on 4 February 2018. Demonstrators were highlighting concerns about human rights violations against Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority. Footage of the incident went viral on YouTube.
