Police Dismantle Tent City Protest Structures

Israel Police on Wednesday began dismantling social protest encampment sites in Tel Aviv and Holon, less than two months after activists set up the tent cities to demonstrate against the high cost of living in the country.

Holon municipality inspectors, accompanied by a large police force, arrived at the social protest encampment in the city’s Jesse Cohen neighborhood mid-morning on Wednesday and started to dismantle improvised wooden structures that were built there by activists.

Unlike in Tel Aviv, where the tent city movement began, many of the activists at the Jesse Cohen site are homeless.

“They’ll destroy and we’ll bring wood and build the structures again,” said neighborhood committee chairman Nissan Zacharia.
