Ashkelon Protesters to Wear Shrouds Saturday Night


Demonstrators protesting the cost of living will wear death shrouds during what is being billed as a "March of the Living"  in Ashkelon, Saturday night. The marchers are taking the name from the annual trip by Israeli youth to the World War II death camps in Poland.

A poster bearing a skull and crossbones says the protesters will call on the government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, "Don't bury us alive" under economic decrees, heavy taxes and the high cost of housing and living.
