ISRAELI LEFT AND RIGHT PLAN POLITICAL ACTIVITY FOR TRUMP'S UPCOMING VISIT

• http://www.jpost.com, BYGIL HOFFMAN

Movements on the Left and Right on Wednesday announced preparations for political activity surrounding US President Donald Trump's May 22 visit.

Peace Now is organizing a rally for May 27, the Saturday night after the visit. Labor and Meretz are cosponsoring the event in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square, the site of a peace rally where Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in November 1995.

Organizers said the event would mark "50 years of occupation and control of the territories" and react to diplomatic overtures Trump might make during his visit.

"We haven't taken to the streets en mass in way too long to protest the lack of hope from the right-wing government," Peace Now head Avi Buskila said. "We have held back for way too long on the occupation, the violence, and the racism. We have let an extremist, power-hungry gang spread hatred and incite against minorities, the free press, the courts and whoever dares criticize the government. Enough is enough."
