Social Justice Demands Grow in Israel With Massive Protests Yesterday

August 7, 2011

The movement for social justice continues to blossom in Israel as massive demonstrations were staged yesterday.

Hundreds of thousands of Israelis rallied in the streets of Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities Saturday night, to protest the country’s high cost of living, and to demand reforms aimed at achieving social justice.

Israeli police and media estimated the turnout of the protests at around 300,000 people in Tel Aviv, at least 20,000 in Jerusalem and thousands of others in communities across Israel’s north, center and south. The coordinated rallies were believed to be among the largest in Israeli history.

The demonstrations began in mid-July with social activists setting up a tent camp on an upscale Tel Aviv street to highlight the high cost of rents and real estate prices, and to call for affordable housing.

    No army needed to shoot people like in Arab countries. Israel is a peaceful democratic society.
