Yesterday, thousands of hi-tech workers demonstrated against the reform in the judicial system under the title - "No democracy - no hi-tech".

The demonstrations were scattered near the employment centers in Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Netanya, Rehovot and more.

As part of the protest, some hi-tech companies closed between 11 and 12.

The hi-tech workers' protest headquarters said yesterday: "The coup is the biggest danger to Israeli hi-tech. Without independent courts, there will be no innovation, no creativity, no investors, and no international companies that up to now have chosen to establish development centers here."
