Israelis build tent town to protest high rents

17.07.2011 - Tel Aviv - New Jewish Resistance

By Nirit Ben-Ari

Rents in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and most other large cities are so high that even people with average salaries cannot afford them. For example, a 3-room apartment in central Tel Aviv is around 7000 NIS (about 2000$). The average salary in Israel is 8698 NIS, and minimum wage in Israel is 4100 NIS.

MK Miri Regev of the rulling Likkud Party came to the camping site to show solidarity, but she was chased out by the booing crowd who also threw water at her, as can be seen in http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=114332568661646
