Former deputy IDF chief of staff Yair Golan speaks at the second night of protests in Jerusalem. “We have an amazing nation,” he says.

Golan, a former Meretz MK who is running to head up the Labor party, tells the gathered crowd that “we could have had the hostages home, in a process of renewal, with another government, to throw the judicial reform in the garbage, with a defense budget that makes sense. But instead, we’re stuck with the Netanyahu-Gantz government.”

He promises change, a government that will be different.

Golan says there an be no victory without the return of the hostages, and says every single person has a responsibility to fight against this government: “We’ll never give up!”
