Israelis in U.S. Set Up Tent City Protests
Israelis in the United States are pitching tents in public spaces, taking up the social justice protests crisscrossing Israel.
Small tent cities have sprung up in New York’s Time Square, across the street from the White House and at a park in Los Angeles, Ynet reported.
About 200 ex-Israelis and supporters of Israel’s housing protesters demonstrated in Los Angeles’ Woodley Park Sunday, in a protest organized on Facebook, according to Ynet. The Israeli protesters said they would return to the country of their birth if the cost of living was less and the financial pressures were not as great.
