Israeli protesters

Israeli experiences one of its largest protests ever.

The largest demonstration in Israeli history has drawn hundreds of thousands of participants, according to some reports.

Ten weeks have passed since the start of demonstrations against government plans for a significant overhaul of the legal system.

In locations like Haifa, record numbers of protesters showed up, while estimates put Tel Aviv’s turnout at around 200,000.

The revisions, according to critics, will damage democracy.

But, according to the administration of Benjamin Netanyahu, proposed changes are better for the electorate.

In what the Israeli newspaper Haaretz referred to as “the largest demonstration in the country’s history,” organizers estimated that up to 500,000 pro-democracy demonstrators flocked to the streets on Saturday.
