Tel Aviv March Leads to Passage of Clean Air Law

Last month, an Israeli students’ group organized a march through the center of Tel Aviv in support of clean air in Israel. The march, which took place on a Friday afternoon, was attended by hundreds of people - students, academics, politicians and residents of Tel Aviv.

The march apparently caught the attention of Israeli lawmakers, and on May 29, the Clean Air Act, which would create mechanisms for monitoring, regulating and enforcing clean air standards, passed its first reading - after being stuck for three years. The law must now past two more readings in Israel's Knesset (parliament) before becoming law.

This film was produced by Daniel Cherrin and Jesse Fox.
