Around 200 people gathered in downtown Jerusalem Tuesday night to protest the national unity government formed earlier in the day. The protesters carried signs reading, "When the government is against the people, the people are against the government."

The protesters were recycling many of the chants from last summer's social protests, including the popular, "The people demands social justice." Others were urging Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to resign.
