Mass protests have been ongoing in Israel for the past ten weeks, in response to proposed judicial reforms by the government. The changes would give the Justice Minister greater power in appointing judges, potentially threatening the independence of the judiciary.
Critics argue that the proposed reforms would undermine the rule of law and threaten democracy in Israel.
The protests have been largely peaceful, with participants holding signs and chanting slogans outside the Justice Ministry and other government buildings.
The demonstrations have been organized by a coalition of legal and civil society groups, who have called for the reforms to be withdrawn. The government has defended the proposed changes, arguing that they are necessary to streamline the judicial system and improve efficiency.
