The Bar Association today (Friday) sided with the protesters against the legal revolution, and announced a strike following the approval of the outline that is expected to remove its two representatives from the committee for selecting judges.
The bureau announced that it would hold a demonstration next Sunday in front of the district court in Tel Aviv, and wrote: "It must not come true."
This is the first time since Avi Himi's resignation that the bureau has sided with the protests.
Within the bar, this is a controversial move, as the new chairman Amit Bachar is identified with the "Black Robes" struggle, but significant parts of the national council of the bar are identified with the support of Justice Minister Levin and the chairman of the Constitution Committee, Rothman.
For example, about two weeks ago, the WhatsApp group of the Bureau went up in flames, after Bacher condemned the threat of National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gabir to fire the legal advisor to the government Gali Beharev Miara.
In response, lawyer Zion Amir wrote that this was an abuse of the power of the position, and lawyer Yitzhak Netovich, who is associated with Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, asked Bakhar not to follow in the footsteps of Himi.
On the other hand, the lawyer Eran Golan sarcastically suggested that everyone should work for Likud.
Last night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clarified that the legal revolution legislation will continue as usual.
This, at the end of a protest day full of demonstrations, roadblocks and arrests of demonstrators.
In a speech he gave in his office in Jerusalem, he stated that the Knesset plenary will approve the change in the composition of the committee for the selection of judges and that he intends to start getting involved in the reform issue, after the approval of the fortification law.
