Coordinators of the weekly demonstrations against the government’s judicial overhaul say they are escalating their protest against the upcoming state budget, calling for a rally at the gates of the Knesset on Tuesday.
The organizers say they are “stepping up the protest against the government and its misallocation of the state budget.”
Protesters are scheduled to gather at Jerusalem’s Chords Bridge at 6 p.m. on Tuesday and to then march to the Knesset for a protest outside its walls at 7 p.m.
The Knesset is expected to be in the final stages of plenum votes to approve the 2023-2024 budget on Tuesday evening.
