Organizers of the protest against the judicial overhaul pushed by the Netanyahu government announced Friday they will hold another mass rally in Tel Aviv, Saturday night.

Former Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh is set to speak at the event, the third such demonstration. Two weeks ago, some 80,000 people demonstrated against the judicial reforms. Last Saturday, the number rose to 130,000. Organizers are expecting even more for the upcoming rally.
