Many Israelis, including whites, blacks. Arabs and Bedouins marched to Rabin Square in Tel Aviv during a human rights rally on 9 December 2011 marking the 63nd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Some 7,000 people attended the rally including a large number of Africans from the Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia and other countries, many of whom walked out of Africa into Israel seeking refugee status and a better life.
