Saturday, 27 February 2021 (YJC)_ Despite the COVID-19 health restrictions, protesters mean to stand on Balfour St in Jerusalem outside the PM's house on Saturday evening and speak out.

From Finland to Tel Aviv: Israelis wave flags and call on Netanyahu to goOn Saturday evening, two organized convoys of anti-Netanyahu protesters are set to head to Balfour Street in Jerusalem, outside the Prime Minister's Residence. Many are expected to come in costume in light of Purim.

This comes amid a special curfew set in place to curb coronavirus infection rates on the holiday.

"The indicted [Netanyahu] released a special regulation to cancel the convoys to Balfour this evening but it will not stop us," activists said.

"We will be in Balfour tonight, whom by foot, whom by car, disguised with black [flags], pink [flags], Israeli flags and signs."

"The right of protest is a basic right and we will uphold it," Ein Matzav activists said.

"We will continue to protest in front of this failed government, which forsake the people in the medical care and economical concern after [the harms of] corona." 

Amid the 36th week of ongoing anti-Netanyahu protests, an Israeli in Finland became a social media hit after airing a video of him skiing with the word "Lech" on his back while waving a black flag during a ski run.

Lech, which means "go" in English is the motto of the movement against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The black flag shown in the video also signifies one of the main leading groups; The Black Flag Movement.

Following the video being aired, hundreds online change the caption on their profile pictures from what would be translated to "Go" instead to "Go ski."
