A protest race is being conducted in the streets of Jerusalem this afternoon, to raise public awareness of the importance of the proposed “Regulatory Law,” the Tazpit news agency reports.

The race started out at the prime minister’s residence and will be completed in the Knesset after going through Jerusalem’s neighborhoods.

The runners are carrying a banner that reads: ” Another Disengagement = Civil War,” equating the coming demolition of the Ulpana Hill neighborhood with the destruction of the Jewish settlements of the Gaza Strip.

Runners also distribute fliers that tell the stories of the threatened neighborhood.

The initiative was organized on Facebook by David Sabbato, who told Tazpit: “It is the acid test of this government. Today we don’t have time to go, we must rush and pass regulatory law. We run to convey a very simple message, if we don’t stop this injustice now, you never know where it will lead.”

Sabbato called on others to initiate protests, saying that “even one man’s protest is still a protest of the planned destruction, and will accumulate along with dozens of protests that are taking place, and I hope that together they will influence the public.”
