Weekly protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are set to take place tonight nationwide for the 35th consecutive week.
Demonstrators are calling for the premier’s resignation due to his indictment on corruption charges, as well as for his handling of the pandemic and its economic fallout.
Rallies are set to take place outside Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem, as well as his private residence in Caesarea, and at hundreds of bridges and traffic junctions nationwide.
The protests are held this week, amid unusually harsh winter weather, under the slogan, “Even in rain and cold, the protest will not stop.” (It rhymes in Hebrew.)
The protest group Movement for Quality Government says, “We will continue to act and protest as a reminder that the prime minister is in the midst of serious criminal proceedings that prevent his ability to simultaneously manage the country.”
