Hundreds of pro-overhaul demonstrators begin gathering in Jerusalem for a protest outside the Supreme Court in support of the government’s efforts to shift power away from the judiciary.

Many are carrying signs with pictures of Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara, Chief Justice Esther Hayut, and former prime minister Ehud Barak with a caption saying “the ruling elite.”

Several protesters are dressed as bananas, an apparent attempt to portray the country as a banana republic where the government has no say.

Several protesters can be seen waving the yellow and black flag of the banned racist Kach movement.

Signs are put up outside the Supreme Court reading “The Supreme Court won’t decide over the [will of the] people.”
