Several left wing organizations, parties, and human rights organizations and movements are expected to march under the title "The Democratic Camp" Saturday night to "wage war" against what they claim is "the government's attack on Israeli decmocracy as conducted by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman." The protest follows Lieberman's recent initiative to establish a Knesset committee to investigate funding for several left-wing NGOs functioning in Israel.

The organizations, parties, and politicians expected to march Saturday night in Tel Aviv include the Association for Civil Rights, the New Israel Fund, Peace Now, The Communist Party of Israel, The Kibbutz Movement, Amnesty, and the Movement for Progressive Judaism, and MKs Meir Sheetrit (Kadima), Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz), Mouhammad Barakei (Hadash).
