In Israel, people with disabilities bravely fight for their rights
In Jerusalem, the activists of the disability rights movement blocked the entrance to the Knesset.
As reported by the police, because of the protest action carried out by disabled people, traffic on the streets of Kaplan and Zusman is blocked.
Recall, the activists of the disability rights movement protesting against the refusal of the Ministry of Finance to support the anchoring of the social security disability benefits to the average salary in the country. This delayed the entry into force of the agreement reached in September last year.
Under this agreement, the amount of social benefits for disabled persons with 100 per cent disability should gradually (until 2021) increase to 4 thousand shekels per month and be indexed depending on the change in the average salary in Israel.
Pay attention that similar meeting is impossible, for example,in Russia - you can imagine that here disabled people blocked off traffic on the highway because of the decision of the government?
