Partners for Progressive Israel had a fascinating conversation Sunday with Gaby Lasky. Lasky is a civil rights attorney and a Meretz representative to the Tel Aviv city council. She is a former secretary-general of Peace Now and specializes in freedom of speech and the right to demonstrate. In 2012, she was honored with the Emil Grunzweig Award for Human Rights by ACRI (the Association for Civil Rights in Israel).
Over the years, Gaby Lasky represented many high profile cases and served as legal counsel to environmental, social and anti-Occupation protest movements. She represented Mahsom Watch, B’tselem, and the latest Gush Shalom petition against the anti-boycott law.
