High-Tech Workers Protest Against Netanyahu

WEST BANK (Dispatches) – Hundreds of high-tech workers in the occupied territories protested Tuesday against a proposed judicial overhaul, saying the regime’s controversial plans will hurt the sector. Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s regime says judges have too much power over elected officials, arguing the proposed reforms -- such as allowing parliament to overrule Supreme Court decisions through a majority vote -- are essential to correct the imbalance. On Tuesday, around 500 high-tech workers held a protest, saying the industry would suffer if foreign firms lost confidence in the regime’s already failing legal system.
The demonstration blocked a road in Tel Aviv while some protesters held anti-Netanyahu placards.
