Israeli-Ethiopian protesters return to Tel Aviv to rally against police brutality, racism

have not been met, Ethiopian- Israeli protesters returned to Tel Aviv on Monday, demanding solutions to what they say is systemic discrimination in Israel in general and abuse at the hands of police.

“We’re here to show that the protests didn’t achieve any results and that we’ll continue. It’s been 30 years and our demands haven’t been met,” activist Inbar Bugale said Monday.

She added that the fact that the Israel Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino fired the police officer seen beating Ethiopian-Israeli IDF soldier Damas Pakada in a video that sparked the protests did not sway demonstrators, saying “He needs to be in jail, not fired.”
