Thousands protest against new law declaring only Jews have the right to self-determination

Tens of thousands of Arab Israelis and their supporters protested at a rally in central Tel Aviv on Saturday against a law declaring Israel the nation state of the Jewish people.

Israeli Jews also joined the demonstration, the second since last Saturday, when thousands from Israel’s Druze minority took to the streets in Tel Aviv to denounce the law they say makes them second-class citizens. Protesters waved Palestinian and Israeli flags at the rally, which Israeli state television said drew a crowd of more than 30,000 people.
