Shmuli: T-Shirt at Tel Aviv Protest Saturday Night

Member of Knesset Itzik Shmuli said, Thursday, that he will take part, Saturday night, in a Tel Aviv demonstration to protest tax hikes and cuts in the upcoming budget. Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, he said, "The awareness of the Israelis has changed since the [social justice] protest of the summer two years ago."

Shmuli said the participation of politicians in demonstrations against the budget was legitimate. The former student-union leader said, "I'll come Saturday night in a T-shirt and on Sunday I'll wear a button-down shirt to fight in the Knesset."
