After helping make a difference in Tel Aviv, one clean-air activist is now concentrating efforts to prevent smoking in public places in Jerusalem.
Hadas Sella and her organization Avir Naki (Clean Air) created a complaint form that the general public can fill out and send to their municipality's Enforcement Department.
While Sella strives to keep people from smoking anywhere, at the very least the law to ban smoking in public places must be properly followed and respected, she says. "I don't want people to think the laws in this country are a joke."
Citizen-based enforcement of the smoking ban is not new, but Sella says that the Avir Naki complaint form has a new and effective component that allows signatories to declare their willingness to testify in court against the public place in question. The form is available on the organization's Web site: www.avir-naki.com
