‘No democracy without High Court’: Mass anti-government rally held in Tel Aviv

January 15, 2023

The crowd at the anti-government protest at Tel Aviv’s Habima Square cheers as torrential rain begins to pour down. Despite Israelis being notoriously rain-averse, people continue to arrive at the rally as a smaller number leave. Sheltering under a tree, Lorna from Tel Aviv says she came to the protest to try to ensure the future for her grandchildren. “I feel like we are living in the beginnings of a dystopian state,” she says. “I am seeing the end of democracy and I feel personally threatened.”
