Thousands of demonstrators are expected to gather in Jerusalem on Sunday to urge Israel to bring some 18,000 immigrant hopefuls from Ethiopia and to allow for greater humanitarian relief to the group while they wait for their applications to be processed. Avraham Neguise, the director of the group organizing the event, South Wing to Zion, said the demonstration would mark the beginning of a hunger strike “in solidarity with the families who are starving.”
