The Black Flag movement, which has led protests against Benjamin Netanyahu over the past year, puts up a giant display at Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square welcoming the new “change government.”

The group writes “Together” alongside an Israel flag.

“The State of Israel has suffered collective trauma over the past two years,” the movement says. “The elections, incitement and threat to democracy left us very fractured. The state is facing immense challenges on the economy and health, welfare and reducing social gaps. These are challenges we can only face if we are together.”

“Only together will we be able to reinstate the social cohesion that had characterized Israel. From now on, we are all together.”
