The radical New Israel Fund (NIF) has warned Israelis to turn off cellphones before attending anti-Netanyahu protests because they are used for “tracking purposes,” as well as instructing protesters how to act in the event of arrest.
A poster, made by the NIF-funded human rights group DocoRights and shared by NIF on its social media pages earlier this month, illustrates the do’s and dont’s for protesters.
“Summer is burning and so is the street,” NIF wrote in the text accompanying the poster.
“It seems that this summer is going to be particularly hot, with quite a few demonstrations and protests. When the Public Security Minister [Amir Ohana] calls the demonstrators ‘agents of chaos,’ it is clear that the demonstrators are expected to have confrontations with police forces.”
