Jerusalem: Protest Against Rise in Electricity Rates


About 200 activists from the protest tent in Jerusalem marched on Tuesday evening towards the prime minister’s residence in protest of the decision to raise electricity rates by almost 10%.

The marchers, who were holding torches, shouted, “This is not a mistake, it is a policy,” and “Bibi turns of the lights, the people take to the streets.”

Earlier the activists decided to ask Israeli citizens to turn off lights and appliances for five minutes on Wednesday evening at 9:00pm.
