Tens of thousands of people gathered in Tel Aviv this weekend to protest their prime minister and his new right-wing government.
The demonstrators believe Benjamin Netanyahu and his government threatens Israeli democracy. Protesters braved the rain and gathered together, carrying signs with slogans that read “government of shame” and “bring down the dictator”.
About 80 thousand people joined the rally.
The demonstration is the biggest since Netanyahu’s new government took power in late December in Israel, a country of just over nine million. Other rallies were held in Jerusalem, outside the prime minister’s and the president’s residences, and in the northern city of Haifa. Protesters called for Netanyahu, who is fighting corruption charges in court, to resign.
