A group of Israeli artists has organized their own tent protest outside the White House in Washington, in a show of solidarity with the social protests that have swept Israel in recent weeks.

The protesters traveled from New York to pitch up their tent, joining the groups of protesters that regularly congregate around the White House in Washington to express their political views.

“We are a band called ‘Punk Hapoalim,’ we came to Washington to set up the first tent protest outside the White House,” one of the protesters, Yaron Atar, said.
