Join hundreds (I hope) of Israelis opposed to sexual violence against women, who will be protesting the prosecutor’s closing of the rape case against Yoav Even. The demonstration will be on Thursday, June 9th at 6PM in Tel Aviv outside the prosecutor’s office, 1 Henrietta Szold Street. The poster alludes to the lack of security for Israeli women, thus setting up an implict comparison with the near-obsession the state has for national security. You can guess who comes out on the short end of the stick in this comparison.
The poster notes the statistic that 80% of all cases involving sexual violence are dropped due to “insufficient evidence or lack of public interest.” In a perverse way, it’s supposed to comfort us I suppose that P’s case falls within that 80% majority.
