Opposition leader Yair Lapid says he will be attending Saturday night’s Tel Aviv protest against the new government’s plans for radical changes to the judicial system.

“We’re stopping the madness, saving the country,” he says.

Lapid was heavily criticized by the opposition last Saturday when he decided not to show, reportedly due to the organizers declining to allow him to speak at the event.
