Protesters Ejected from Knesset, Likud Meeting


Protesters demanding affordable housing caused provocations both in the Knesset and at a meeting of the Likud Monday. Protesters were invited to the Knesset by opposition MKs, but once there, the protesters began heckling MKs and refused to be quiet for discussions. They were ejected by Knesset security personnel.

At a meeting of Likud MKs, students demanding more affordable schooling attempted to interfere with a meeting that was just starting. They, too, were removed by security personnel.
