Anti-Netanyahu protest groups hail coming end of restrictions on demonstrations

Groups leading the ongoing anti-Netanyahu protests welcome the news that the government won’t extend emergency powers limiting public gatherings, including the demonstrations, when they expire tomorrow night.

The “Black Flag” movement says it activists will return to protesting outside the Prime Minister Residence’s in Jerusalem, which had been the center of the ant-Netanyahu demonstrations before the restrictions were imposed.

The Crime Minister group also says its activists will rally at the Prime Minister’s Residence on Saturday evening.

“The state’s response is a harbinger of the end of the political lockdown and the end of the dictatorial regulations,” it says.

The group is referring to the state’s announcement to the High Court of Justice that the measures won’t be extended.
