"A number of social justice rallies were held across Israel on Saturday evening, with the largest taking place in Tel Aviv where thousands of people gathered in Rabin Square.

Protest marches in Tel Aviv began in the Shapira, Levinsky, and Hatikva neighborhoods, before uniting and continuing on to Rabin Square. Demonstrators chanted "We want justice, not charity" and "Taking from the poor, giving to the rich, what a country of corruption."


"Rallies were to be held in cities throughout Israel, including Jerusalem, Haifa, Kiryat Shmona, Nahriya, Pardes Hanna, and Eilat, under the banner of "Returning the country to the citizens".

Similar rallies were held throughout the world on Saturday in "Global May," a international day of protest marking the anniversary of the protest in Puerta del Sol, Madrid, where a massive people’s assembly took control of the famous square in 2011."
