Prohibited Protest

Issued September 2009.
Crowds of Palestinian citizens of Israel came out in December 2008 to demonstrate against "Operation Cast Lead", joined by Jewish Israelis.

State authorities, including even certain academic institutions, made arrest the easiest and fastest method of suppressing the protest against the military operations. The reaction to the demonstrations made clear the ease with which the State can deny a demonstrator's rights. 
Prohibited Protest details what happened during these demonstrations and how authorities worked to silence opposition.
