Hundreds of Israelis demonstrated against the new coalition government.
More than 1,000 protested in Tel Aviv, and hundreds in Jerusalem, against the deal struck between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the opposition Kadima Party. A protest also was held in Beersheba.
Former Kadima chairman Tzipi Livni, who resigned from the Knesset earlier this month, said at the Tel Aviv rally that the young demonstrators deserved a politics “of principles and not of survival.”
The demonstration was planned on Facebook by some of last summer’s social protest leaders, according to Haaretz.
At least seven people, including journalists, were arrested during the Tel Aviv demonstration after police declared it illegal and prevented protesters from marching in the streets to the Likud Party headquarters.
