Israel: Opposition grows to controversial 'Cultural Loyalty' bill

Over a thousand people demonstrated in Tel Aviv on Saturday against the controversial 'cultural loyalty' bill. Opponents believe the proposed legislation represents censorship. Activists called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt the legislative initiative, after the 'Cultural Loyalty' bill was approved by the Israeli Parliament Ministerial Committee on October 23. The bill seeks to cancel state funding to cultural works or institutions that harm or disrespect the symbols of the State of Israel, or refer to Independence Day as a day of mourning, or incite to violence or terrorism, among other things.
