‘I am seeing the end of democracy’: protesters arrive at Habima Square amid torrential rain
The crowd at the anti-government protest at Tel Aviv’s Habima Square cheers as torrential rain begins to pour down.
Despite Israelis being notoriously rain-averse, people continue to arrive at the rally as a smaller number leave.
Sheltering under a tree, Lorna from Tel Aviv says she came to the protest to try to ensure the future for her grandchildren.
“I feel like we are living in the beginnings of a dystopian state,” she says. “I am seeing the end of democracy and I feel personally threatened.”
