(Worthy News) – Tens of thousands of demonstrators braved pouring rain Saturday night to gather at Tel Aviv’s Habima Square for protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government and its plans for sweeping changes to Israel’s justice system.
Police estimated some 80,000 people rallied in the square and surrounding streets, with many traveling to Tel Aviv from around the country on hired buses. Demonstrations were also held in Jerusalem and Haifa.
Many in the large crowd, which quickly overflowed the square, carried umbrellas, Israeli flags, and placards denouncing the coalition’s plans to shackle the judicial system. “We are faithful to the Declaration of Independence,” a widely distributed sticker proclaimed. “Fighting for democracy,” declared a large banner at the rear of the elevated stage. A few of those present carried Palestinian flags. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
