I went to a rally at Jerusalem's France Square

It's also called the Paris Square. Here's the report about this:
"I'm very sorry to say we have a weak and very dangerous prime minister, possibly the most dangerous Israel has ever had," MK Zvi Hendel (NU/NRP) said Monday evening at a demonstration protesting the Annapolis peace conference organized by the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip (Yesha).

Thousands of right-wing activists took part in the rally in Jerusalem's Paris Square and police closed streets in the surrounding area, including main thoroughfares such as Rehov Keren Hayesod, Rehov King George, and Sderot Ben Maimon.

Earlier, 15,000 people participated at prayer rally at the Western Wall for the failure of the Annapolis parley.

At Monday afternoon's demonstration, speakers denounced the Annapolis conference and asked whether the government officials taking part in the talks really represented the Jewish people.

Speakers also said that Israel was run under a "constitutional dictatorship."
Here's also a video of Congressman Eric Cantor from One Jerusalem's special rally that took place yesterday:
