Gasoline Protesters: Bring Down Electric Grid


Wolf Grauer, leader of the fight for lower fuel prices, called, Wednesday, for people to make record use of electricity at 8:00 p.m., Thursday and bring down the national power grid in protest of the latest record price in gasoline. The electric company has called on people to conserve energy until 9:00 p.m. at least because heating on this cold winter night will make for record demand against record low reserves because of power lines downed so far during the storm.

Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, Grauer said the time has come for the government to stop ruining the middle class. He said members of the government acted like tyrants, making the country rich at the people's expense.
