Tens of thousands rally in Tel Aviv, Haifa against judicial overhaul

Tens of thousands of people are protesting in Tel Aviv and Haifa against the government’s judicial overhaul plans for a 13th straight week.

Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street and Azrieli Junction are filled with demonstrators. The Walla news site reports tens of thousands are rallying against the government’s plans in Haifa.

Overall, demonstrations are planned in 150 locations across the country.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday paused the legislative process of the overhaul to allow for negotiations on a compromise reform package.

But protest organizers, wary that controversial legislation giving the coalition control over judicial appointments could be brought to a vote within 24 hours, have vowed to continue organizing demonstrations until the overhaul is buried.
