Thousands of people are protesting against the Netanyahu government in Israel

Thousands of people have demonstrated against the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The event was held in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening local time. Similar events were held in Jerusalem and the northern city of Haifa. Demonstrations took place outside the Prime Minister's and President's residences in Jerusalem.

Protesters say Netanyahu's new far-right government is a threat to Israel's democracy. They called for the resignation of Netanyahu, accused of corruption in the court.

According to Israeli media reports, 80,000 people took part in the anti-Netanyahu protest in Tel Aviv. Although nothing has been officially said about this by the police. Earlier in the evening, police said 20,000 people had participated in the event.

These people protested ignoring the rain. At the time, they called Netanyahu's government a "government of shame" and chanted slogans like "Dictator Moruk".

It was the largest anti-government protest in Israel, a country of just over 9 million people since Netanyahu came to power last December.

"The situation is very worrying and scary," Aya Tal, a 22-year-old high-tech industry worker in Israel, said of the current situation. "They (the government) want to take away our rights...we have to unite."

Protesters also chanted against new Justice Minister Yariv Levin, who is known as a far-right extremist. Because Yariv Levin recently unveiled a new and long-promised government plan. If this new policy goes into effect, Israel's Supreme Court will become even weaker.

Critics charged that the most right-wing government in Israel's history had declared war on the judiciary. They also say that the independence of the country's judiciary will be undermined by this plan of government. Democratic institutions will weaken. Because all the powers will be in the hands of the new government.

An Israeli lawmaker said, "Bibi (Netanyahu) doesn't want democracy. We don't need fascists in the Knesset (Israel's parliament).'

Netanyahu, Israel's longest-serving prime minister, formed a new government at the end of December. This time he came to power in alliance with extreme right-wing Jewish parties. It has been called the most right-wing and religiously conservative government in Israel's 74-year history. Leftist and Palestinian lawmakers in the Knesset have spoken out against the Netanyahu government since taking power.
