National Unity party leader vows to continue to fight against the government’s judicial restructuring plan after attending tonight’s mass protest in Tel Aviv.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came tonight to this important protest,” Gantz says. “We will continue to act against this regime’s coup and for reforms — but only with wide agreement.”

Labor party leader Merav Michaeli says, “The rain doesn’t scare us and you certainly don’t either. We will not let you destroy our democracy.”
Right-wing lawmakers including Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich lash out at the media for covering the protests, accusing journalists of double standards and claiming anti-government demonstrations against the previous coalition did not get the same coverage. Those events did not approach the scale of tonight’s Tel Aviv demonstration, however.
