(Worthy News) – Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets across Israel as part of a day of “escalating resistance to dictatorship,” blocking roads and protesting the government’s continued advance of controversial legislation to radically overhaul the judiciary and restrict the powers of the High Court of Justice.
Many of the protesters said they were inspired to come out and demonstrate after the government showed no signs of slowing down its legislative efforts and rejected an alternate proposal for judicial reform from President Isaac Herzog on Wednesday night.
At least 21 people were detained in several incidents, including two motorists accused of pepper-spraying demonstrators who blocked the road. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
