Organizers of the protests against the government’s judicial overhaul say tonight’s demonstrations will be held at 150 locations across the country, and for the first time, in the Likud strongholds of Ramla and Beit Shean.

They say the protests are “a historic evening at the beginning of the fateful week for the State of Israel and the fate of the Declaration of Independence.”

“[Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s speech of lies proved that he is determined to fight the values ​​of the Declaration of Independence, determined to dismantle the people’s army and the Israeli economy,” the organizers say, referring to a Thursday night televised speech where Netanyahu vowed to continue the overhaul legislation.

“The fate of the country now lies before Israelis who will take to the streets and decide the intention to turn Israel into a dictatorship,” the protest organizers add.

The main rally will begin with a 6:30 p.m. march from Kikar Dizengoff to the central demonstration on Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street.
