Protesters against the judicial overhaul block Route 2, the key coastal highway, near Ma’agan Michael Kibbutz, north of Caesarea.

According to reports, demonstrators set off smoke flares.

Heavy traffic disruptions are expected throughout the country as protesters take to the streets to rally against the coalition’s plans to pass a bill to curtail judicial review of government decisions next week.

Protesters are also planning to mass at train stations in Tel Aviv and around the country Tuesday afternoon, disrupting commutes to pile pressure on the government and slow down legislation that will bar courts from using a reasonableness test to judge government decisions.
