Social Injustice Protest Israel, 2011




The 2011 Israeli social justice protests (Hebrew: מְחָאָת צֶדֶק חֶבְרָתִי‎), were a series of demonstrations in Israel beginning in July 2011 involving hundreds of thousands of protesters from a variety of socio-economic and religious backgrounds opposing the continuing rise in the cost of living (particularly housing) and the deterioration of public services such as health and education. A common rallying cry at the demonstrations was the chant; "The people demand social justice!".

It began on one afternoon in tel-Aviv. And continued all over the country. The woman in the picture, Stav Shapir, later joined the now-defunct Labour party and became a Knesset Member.
