Anti-overhaul protesters enter Tel Aviv Stock Exchange

Protesters block an entrance to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange before entering the building and protesting inside.

Opponents of the judicial overhaul charge the government’s contentious plan will cause massive economic damage to the country.

Leading economic thinkers have spoken out against the overhaul, while senior figures in the tech industry, a flagship of Israel’s economy, have played key roles in the protest movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hardline coalition, including far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, have dismissed the concerns.
