Israel: 'Corrupted, go home' — Hundreds rally against government in Tel Aviv

Hundreds participated on Saturday in the weekly «March of Shame» in Tel Aviv against alleged corruption by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government. Protesters shouted slogans including «shame» and «corrupted, go home» and carried banners denouncing the government. «We will fight for this country, against corruption, there is no right wing, no left wing, only one thing: a... Еще fight against corruption, the law which is the base of democracy», stated one of the rally organisers Eibi Benjamin. A small group of right-wing, pro-government protesters also took part in a counter demo. This is the ninth week in a row that the anti-corruption rally is held in Tel Aviv. Apart of the main demonstration in Tel Aviv, smaller anti-corruption protests were also held in Jerusalem, Haifa, and Afula, according to local media. In the past year, Netanyahu has been questioned in two corruption probes, which he claims to be false accusations from his opponents. Results of the investigation are expected within the next few weeks. If charged, the prime minister would be under pressure to resign or to call new elections.
