“Afraid of Losing Democracy”, Thousands of Israelis Protest Against New Government Measures.

Israelis protest Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government’s plans to alter the legal system and undermine the Supreme Court on Saturday night in central Tel Aviv. According to critics, this action will harm the nation’s democratic system of checks and balances.

The rally was seen as an early test by Itamar Ben-Gvir, Netanyahu’s ultranationalist national security minister, who has ordered police to crush activists who block roadways or display Palestinian flags.
