Social Activist Stav Shafir to Run for Knesset

Social activist Stav Shafir announced Friday that he plans to run for the Knesset under the Labor Party with the slogan, "This is our time - Stav Shafir."

On her Facebook page the activist wrote, "If there's something I learned from this past year, it is that the most serious moments of decision, are the easiest. If you choose the right path, the path becomes clear."

"Today, just before these really stormy elections begin - we know that the squares have been conquered," Shafir wrote to her supporters, "but the important decisions will be made by my generation. Friends, the responsibility that we took upon ourselves last summer must be extended across the street."
