The organizers say they are fighting against what they call an attempted “coup” by the government which would harm Israel’s democracy.
The organizers stated, “a strike is a non-violent democratic tool that produces a change of consciousness. A strike reminds the government that the citizens are the owners of the house. We are the bosses. A one-hour strike can serve as the first step in a series of shutdown events in the economy. Let’s shake the country as long as possible.”
“We assume that you are aware of the public discourse about the legal reform and the protest it has provoked,” said the strike’s organizers in an open letter addressed to Benjamin Netanyahu himself. “We have employees with diverse opinions and we always include and respect every person regardless of who they are.”
