RE: Urgent request for emergency consultation with street persons in
Volovelsky Karny park - facing eviction!

Dear Attorney Gan-Mor and Yakir:
First, let me express my gratitude again to you personally and to the
Association in general for your help in a wide range of issues, and in particular
- for your ongoing initiative regarding representing the interests of street
persons in srael.
n Novmber 2012, the Social Protest camp in Rothschild Avenue, Tel-Aviv,
was moved to the Volovlesky-Karny park, pursuant to an agreement between
the Tel-Aviv Municipality and representatives of the sraeli Social Protest
Over the past year and a half, have personally extended the agreement on a
monthly basis under the OccupyTLV title. [1]
During the period since November 2012, people have continuously lived in the
park. During this period, some notable incidents took place, which should be
deemed unlawful harassment and deprivation of fundamental rights by the
Tel- Aviv Municipality and the srael Police. [2]
A few days ago, the municipality distributed flyers, indicating that the people
living in the park would have to be confined, starting October 19, 2014, to a
very small, insufficient area in the north-west corner of the park. [3] Some
help was presumably offered for finding individual solutions for the people
now living in the park.
There are great concerns regarding the integrity of this action, its motives, and
its expected outcomes.
The situation causes hardship and duress, and people who live here may lose
their meager worldly possessions and remain with no shelter during the
approaching winter.
You surely know that many of the people here are under-privileged in any
possible way. With the mounting pressure, we have already seen increase in
violence level here, and conditions may rapidly further deteriorate.
Moreover, there is concern that people are receiving false legal advice from
persons with no legal qualifications, who provided false and misleading legal
advice in the past as well. Further harm may result.
Therefore, would be grateful if you would be able to schedule a meeting in
your office, as soon as possible, to provide some basic assessment and
With it, must add: The actions against the people in the Volovelsky-Karny
park take place at the same time that oppressive actions are taken against
residents of Givat Amal, against Bedouins in the Negev, and much worse
oppression continues in Palestine by a government that lost all semblance of
legitimacy. The Rule of Law is only a fiction, as personally witness almost on
a daily basis in the conduct of law agencies against the Tax Authority whistle-
blower Rafi Rotem ( am one of the activists who support him).
Therefore, my expectations regarding protection under the law are minimal or
none. With it, you surely know better than most, what are the most
reasonable modes of action under our predicament.
hope to hear back from you tomorrow, Sunday, and hope that you would be
able to schedule a meeting immediately after Rosh HaShana. The mere
knowledge that ACR would be advising us, would dramatically reduce
pressure levels here.
Shana Tova,
