Huge protest in Israel over rightwing government’s judicial changes

No Comments

An estimated 100,000 people took to the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday night in what protesters described as a “fight for Israel’s destiny” over sweeping judicial changes proposed by the new far-right government.

Israel’s longtime prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, returned to office last month at the helm of a coalition of conservative and religious parties that make up the most right-wing government in the country’s history.

The new administration has accused Israel’s supreme court of leftwing bias and overstepping its authority. It is seeking to curb the court’s powers by severely restricting its ability to overturn laws and government decisions and giving the Knesset more control over judicial appointments.
