Left-wing activists protest against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling on him to resign, at Habima Square in Tel Aviv.

Last week it was a pro-Netanyahu rally, this weekend it is an anti-Netanyahu protest.

At least 10,000 demonstrators gathered in Tel Aviv’s Habima Square on Saturday night for a rally organized by the Movement for Quality Government, according to Ynet.

The demonstrators waved signs with slogans saying, “Strong democracy, strong Israel,” and “Netanyahu resign, Israel is more important,” and “Banana Republic.”

The move follows the announcement by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit of his decision to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three different corruption cases, dubbed by police Case 1000, Case 2000 and Case 4000.

However, Mandelblit also underlined that the prime minister need not resign until and unless he is proven guilty as charged.

Negotiating teams for the Likud and the Blue and White parties are expected to meet on Sunday afternoon for another round of talks. Eleven days remain until times runs out for a Knesset lawmaker to propose a coalition for the establishment of the next government.

If no government is formed in that time, the Knesset will be dissolved and Israelis will be forced to return to the polls for a third time.
