Several thousand left-wing protesters have gathered near Habima theater in Tel Aviv ahead of a march against the new government.

Former Attorney General Dina Zilber also joint the rally, which is being called "the march of rage."

The Omdim B'yahad movement, one of the rally's organizers wrote in a statement: "The extreme and dangerous bodies in the new government which was established are already planning to harm us all: how to deepen the racist discrimination against Arab citizens, how to cut social funding, how to discriminate based on gender and sex."

"We will not sit at home holding hands and will not get used to despair and frustration. Where there's a fight, there's hope. And we will fight for our home."

The Black Flag movement wrote: "Netanyahu, in an attempt to save himself from prison, is trying to destroy any semblance of democracy. The police coup will meet a nation of Israel that is determined to preserve democracy and will fail."
