Mass protests in Israel again despite the postponement of judicial reform

Mass protests in Israel again despite the postponement of judicial reform

According to the organizers, the actions are planned in about 150 locations in the country. According to media reports, protesters blocked several streets in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities.

Thousands of people demonstrated again in Israel despite the temporary halt to controversial judicial reform. The main gathering of protests across the country kicked off in Tel Aviv for the 13th consecutive Saturday. “The government does not want an agreement, it just wants to buy time to pass the judicial coup,” the organizers said. The job of the population is to protect democracy. This is the most important time since the founding of the state.”

Accordingly, actions are planned in about 150 locations in the country. According to media reports, protesters blocked several streets in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities. They waved Israeli flags. The banners read: “Democracy is stronger than this government” or “Stop Netanyahu.” In addition, several photos that were supposed to show Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an orange prison uniform can be seen.

Netanyahu postponed the controversial reform

After massive protests and a general strike, the head of government delayed the controversial legislation proposal for a few weeks on Monday in order to make room for “dialogue”. Several talks have taken place between the coalition and the opposition since Tuesday. But politicians from opposition parties have repeatedly questioned Netanyahu’s seriousness in wanting to compromise.

With judicial reform, Netanyahu’s coalition wants to reduce the influence of the Supreme Court and expand the position of government power. The court is accused of excessive interference in political decisions. In the future, for example, Parliament should be able to overturn Supreme Court decisions by a simple majority. Critics see the separation of powers in danger and warn of a state crisis if reform is implemented in this way.
