28 civil society organizations and activists: “the Wind Blowing in the Knesset Endangers Us All”

We will not stop struggling for equality, social justice, and democracy


We, civil society organizations and activists, think that it is inappropriate – and even dangerous – that the Knesset will conduct political investigations. This is also the opinion of the Knesset’s Legal Advisor, Eyal Yinon, who said that "this is a precedent that raises basic questions regarding the character of parliamentary committees of inquiry and the extent of rights that are at the core of a democratic regime."
 
We would like to emphasize that under the existing legal system, all donations to NGOs are from funds that were approved by the Israeli government, and are received and reported in accordance with existing laws.
 
It is also important to note that this is not one Knesset bill, but rather a legislative trend that violates basic freedoms such as freedom of expression and political protest, as well as values such as equality and social solidarity. In the face of this trend, in the meantime, we prefer to invest our energy in promoting values of peace, human rights, equality, social justice, and democracy – for the benefit of all individuals and communities in the country. We do so with the support of our volunteers, partners, friends, and allies, who believe that these are the foundation stones for securing the future.
