Disabled protesters block main highway near Jerusalem – The Times of Israel (blog)

Some two dozen disabled people briefly blocked a major intersection on Route 1 outside Jerusalem as they continue their campaign demanding better disability benefits from the government.

The wheelchair bound protesters blocked southbound lanes on Route 1 at the Latrun interchange for over a half hour before police dispersed the demonstration.

Earlier today, disabled demonstrators clashed with police and blocked a major interchange north of Tel Aviv at a similar protest.

The protests are the latest in a series of escalating actions disabled citizens have taken to push for an increase in state benefits.
