A demonstration against the legal revolution led by the government in Israel is expected to take place tomorrow (Friday) in Rome, at the same time as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the Italian capital.

The demonstration is organized by an independent group called "Free Israeli Citizens", which according to the organizers is made up of representatives of Israeli civil society in Italy.

The event will take place starting at 15:00 in Piazza Santi Apostoli in the center of Rome.

The organizers of the demonstration said that it was intended "to raise awareness among Italian public opinion and Italian institutions of the anti-democratic drift of the current far-right government in Israel, which is trying to limit the power of justice through reforming the judicial system."

Against the background of the demonstrations throughout Israel, the organizers explain that the demonstration in Rome aims to preserve the democratic system in Israel.

They also added that "the guarantee of a democratic system in a country with which Italy has political and economic relations also affects Europe. The fear of the centralization of power in the hands of the government has already caused some investors to leave the country."

"Participating will be mainly Italian and Israeli Jews living in Italy, such as students who are supposed to return to Israel one day on the assumption that it will continue to be democratic, or people like me who are on the Israel-Italy line and divide their time between the two countries," Lavala said!

"It's not washing the dirty laundry outside at all," she responds to criticism against Israelis protesting abroad about their prime minister and his government's policies. World Jewry as a whole.

It never occurs to us that the state will exist as a dictatorship." She emphasizes, "We see the demonstration as an expression of a moral position, not at all political." According to her, it is difficult to estimate

how many will come to the demonstration. "The community of Israelis in Rome is very small, but we hear of people who will come and in any case from our point of view The amount is not significant but the clear statement that we stand by our brothers in Israel, strengthen them and think that their fight for a free state is heroic and we embrace them from afar."

Among the organizers is 46-year-old Itamar, who has lived in Italy for three years and owns an international business for ecological products.

This is his first time organizing a demonstration.

"We will do our best to help friends and family in Israel," he says, "I simply worry about the future of the State of Israel and a democratic Israel is also important to Italy."

Itamar denied any connection between him and the organizers of the demonstration to the ads that read about Netanyahu's visit "PERSONA NON GRATA" ("unwanted personality").

"This is not an ad from us. We are not protesting against the Israeli government or the prime minister, but for a democratic, strong and liberal Israel. Until recently, we thought that everyone was in favor of it, but it turns out that they are not and it should be mentioned. True, it is unusual to protest abroad and in the Jewish community not everyone support

A large part supports yes, but it is difficult for him to understand exactly the details.

Those who were exposed and saw and read about this 'reform' are with us."
