Sudanese Asylum Seekers Protest Israel's Plan to Incarcerate in Tel Aviv

The protesters chanted 'We are refugees, not infiltrators.'

Some 300 Sudanese protested on Sunday outside Tel Aviv's Kirya government headquarters against plans to imprison African asylum-seekers in a Negev detention facility. They called on the state to examine their individual requests for recognition as refugees and grant them their rights and protection. The refugees also complained that the United Nations does not do enough to safeguard them.
