Photos: 2012 Human Rights March in Tel Aviv

On Friday, December 7th, thousands hit the streets of Tel Aviv for the annual Human Rights March, put on by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI). The march gathered more than 130 organizations that promote human rights, social change, equality, and democracy. The march marked International Human Rights Day, which is observed every year on December 10th, the day in which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

The event ended in Rabin Square with performances by several Israeli artists and a keynote speech by author and ACRI President Sami Michael.
