Tens of thousands of people mobilized again this Saturday in the main cities of Israel in rejection of the judicial reform promoted by the Government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.


Israel unions reactivate anti-judicial reform protest

This is day 28 of massive protests against a reform that, according to the protesters, would alter the balance of power and democracy in that nation.

Although Tel Aviv (capital) was once again the epicenter of the day of struggle, with nearly 150,000 protesters, the media reported that there were significant protests in the cities of Haifa, Netanya, Beer Sheva, Kfar Saba, Raanana and Raanan Ben .

Although the protesters maintain pressure in the streets and internal political sectors rejected the plan of Netanyahu and the Minister of Justice, Yariv Levin, the head of government never withdrew the reform of the Knesset (Parliament).

At the head of what is considered the most ultra-conservative Cabinet in Israeli history, Netanyahu paused the process for several weeks and then announced that he would withdraw one of the key points of the reform, but did not put an end to it.

In fact, this week the Knesset approved a part of the regulations that prevents the courts from questioning the government's action. This motivated the organizers of the protests to call a Day of Resistance last Tuesday, considered a success due to the high participation, and another for next July 18.

In a statement, the organizations calling for the mobilizations made it clear that the protests on July 18 "will kick off an unprecedented week of civil resistance and disobedience to judicial reform."

In addition to considering that the reform will weaken the democratic system, for months protesters have expressed that Netanyahu is promoting it to evade justice, given the process that is being followed for corruption.

Hours ago, the Chief of Staff had to be admitted to a local hospital due to dehydration. The former prime minister and now an opponent, Ehud Barak (1999-2001), wished him a speedy recovery but warned him that the fight against judicial reform will continue.
