‘The Dead Sea is in danger’ – Negev workers blast Netanyahu in mass protest

Thousands of Dimona residents took to the streets of the Negev town on Sunday in protest of rising unemployment in Israel’s underdeveloped cities, which was exacerbated by recent layoffs announced by Israel Chemicals, one of the country’s largest fertilizer and metal manufacturers.

Demonstrators have blocked traffic on Route 25 in both directions.

The protest was attended by prominent figures from the opposition, including Labor Party MK Shelly Yachimovich and  Yisrael Beytenu MKs Sopha Landver and Sharon Gal.
