Ethiopian-Israelis continue protests, week after A-G closes case on police who attacked soldier

Hundreds of Ethiopian-Israelis and their supporters marched in Tel Aviv on Monday to protest against racism and police brutality, hours after police issued their findings of an internal police committee on issues related to the Ethiopian-Israeli community.

Protest leader Meni Yaso said that for his community, nothing has changed since they first took to the streets in a protest in late April, after video emerged of a police officer assaulting an IDF soldier of Ethiopian descent. One protest at Rabin Square Tel Aviv descended into violence with dozens of protesters and police hurt, with police arresting and detaining dozens of protesters and rioters.
