For the twelfth consecutive Saturday in Israel protesters took to the streets in 150 different locations to protest the justice reform wanted by the government of Benjamin Netanyahu. From north to south of the country and in Tel Aviv thousands of demonstrators converged on the streets to invite the government to backtrack on the justice reform which will limit the power of the judges in favor of the majority of the executive.

In the north of the country, police officers used water cannons against protesters. Earlier, more than 1.000 protesters, led by a group representing military reservists, protested outside the home of Defense Minister Yoav Gallant in Moshav Amikam in northern Israel.

"Gallant, who is silent out of fear, who realizes he is responsible for the disintegration of the army, who knows that the soldiers will be judged in The Hague, who lends a hand to the dictatorship," protesters said. More and more reservists - who are a key part of the army's routine activities, even in top units - have warned they will be unable to serve in an undemocratic Israel. The demonstrations underway today precede a nationwide "week of paralysis" by protesters which begins tomorrow, March 26.

Protest leaders announced plans for targeted demonstrations against ministers and lawmakers on Sunday and Monday, and promised mass demonstrations on "days of paralysis" on Wednesday and Thursday, including a "giant protest" at the Knesset, parliament, in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
