Over 1,000 gather in Beersheba for anti-government protest

Over 1,000 demonstrators have gathered outside the Beersheba city hall for a protest against Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

The protest is occurring at the same time as massive demonstrations in Tel Aviv.

Thousands are also gathered near the Horev shopping area in Haifa, and outside the President’s Residence in Jerusalem.

The demonstrations mark the third week that opponents of Netanyahu’s government take to the streets, protesting Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s proposals to shake up the judiciary by severely curbing the High Court of Justice’s judicial review powers and cementing political control over the appointment of judges.
