‘Bring Back the Cottage Cheese Protests’


Organizers of previous consumer boycotts and protests over high prices have called to resume an earlier protest over the price of cottage cheese in wake of a decision to increase the prices of dairy products.

Organizer Itzik Elrov called to “send a clear message to the big corporations that the public is not willing to be part of the circle of exploitation.” The problem is that most prices of dairy products are high, he said, not just that of cottage cheese. “The monopolistic food corporations again are cynically using their power to increase the prices with no justification,” he added.
