Organizers of the mass protest last night in Tel Aviv vow to return to the streets again this weekend to protest the government’s planned mass judicial shakeup.
In a statement, the organizers say they intend for this weekend’s protest to take place on Kaplan Street in Tel Aviv near the government complex that includes the IDF headquarters — instead of at Habima Square — in order to allow for more people to attend in a somewhat less residential area.
“The journey to stop this coup has just begun,” organizers say. “This is a determined and uncompromising fight to save democracy, and the people of Israel are coming out en masse to protest.”
The Movement for Quality Government in Israel says meanwhile that they intend to stay in Habima Square for this Saturday evening’s protest.
Eliad Shraga, chairman of The Movement for Quality Government in Israel, says “we will continue together to lead and organize this fight for the character and identity of the State of Israel as a democratic and liberal nation. We will fight in the streets, the squares and on the bridges — in the courts and in the Knesset.”
