Thousands of Israeli settlers protested in Tel Aviv and Haifa on Saturday evening, January 21, against the fascist far-right Netanyahu’s government and its plans to “reform the legal system” and weaken the Supreme Court of the Israeli occupation.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that about 50,000 Israeli settlers are now participating in a demonstration in Haifa against the extremist far-right Netanyahu government. in conjunction, thousands are flocking to join other demonstrations in Tel Aviv.
The Israeli Channel 12 said that the organizers of the demonstrations expect the participation of about 100,000 demonstrators tonight against the Netanyahu government.
Later, Israeli security sources reported the participation of more than 110,000 Israeli settlers in the Tel Aviv demonstrations.
It added, “After the dispute between the protest organizers, two separate demonstrations will be held in Tel Aviv, one in Habima Square, and the other in Kaplan Street.
“Other demonstrations are also expected to be organized in Jerusalem, Beersheba, and Haifa,” added channel 12.
A previous demonstration took place last week against Netanyahu. Media considered it to be the largest demonstration in the occupation state since the Netanyahu government assumed its duties, late last month.
The Israeli Minister of Justice in Netanyahu’s government, Yariv Levin, is preparing draft laws necessary to advance reforms in the judiciary system, in preparation for referring them by the end of this month to the Ministerial Committee for Legislation and the Constitution Committee in the Knesset.
According to The Times of Israel, Minister Levin announced a “comprehensive, wide-ranging, and controversial reform of ‘Israel’s judicial and legal system’, which, if enacted, would arguably be the most radical change ever to the system of government.”
On December 29, Netanyahu’s government, which includes parties from the Israeli far-right, took the constitutional oath in the Knesset and proceeded to perform its duties. The new far-right government started implementing controversial plans and decisions, especially about limiting the power of the judiciary and the control of the Ministry of National Security headed by the extremist minister, Itamar Ben Gvir over the “Israeli police”.
It’s also working to expand illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank and increasing restrictions on the Palestinians in Jerusalem, West Bank, and 1948-occupied Palestinian territories.
