At 11am, a strike is scheduled to last for one hour, during which time a demonstration will take place at the Sarona complex, with participation from other organizations and businesses.
Organizations informed their personnel that they could take part in the protest depending on their personal beliefs. Companies that will permit employees to walk out and rally include: Natural Intelligence, Redis, Lemonade, INX, Hello Heart, Wiz, Cheq, Active Implants, Algosec, Forter, Cheetah Technologies, Luminescent, HoneyBook, The End, Meat., Piggy, and Track160.
The high–tech companies have only taken minor measures of protest in comparison to the bold statement made by the headquarters of “The Fight Against the Coup D‘etat“ on Sunday. This statement declared that high–tech workers and over 130 businesses and companies would be taking part in a full–day shutdown as an act of warning against the Israeli government.
The reality, however, is that only some companies have allowed their employees to leave for an hour in order to participate in the protest. The hi–tech protest movement has been forming over the last few weeks and has officially joined forces with the headquarters of the demonstrations on Saturday.
Erez Shachar, a managing partner at the venture capital fund Qumra Capital, declared recently that they had begun to collect donations from high–tech businesses with the intent of reaching millions of shekels, in order to finance the protest. Additionally, Papaya Global‘s CEO Eynat Guez also spoke at the event.
