Some 150,000 protesters rally against overhaul in Tel Aviv
Approximately 140,000-150,000 are protesting the government’s judicial overhaul in Tel Aviv, Channel 12 news and Ynet report.
Opposition leader Yair Lapid is in attendance, tweeting: “We are on our guard. The danger has not passed.”
Lapid has sent negotiators to talks on a compromise reform package, but is suspicious that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s suspension of the legislative process is a delaying tactic.
