Parents and children demonstrated, Thursday evening, in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Be'er Sheva, Eilat and the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Motzkin, as well as three other locations throughout the country, against the high cost of raising a child. Dozens of people demonstrated against the high price of dairy products, Thursday evening, outside the home of businessman Nochi Dankner, who owns controlling interest in the Supersol supermarket chain.

Another demonstration in Tel Aviv protested the fact that prevention of cruelty to animals is undertaken only by private organizations. They called for immediate implementation of a spaying and neutering law and improvement of conditions in animal pounds. About 100,000 dogs are put to death each year.
