Dylan in Florentin


This is what Florentin looked like tonight. Hundreds of young people marking Florentin Day. The idea was to make the public aware of the lack of facilities in the neighbourhood (populated by a mix of Holocaust survivors, artisans , students and artists) and also to protest plans to evacuate long time residents to build residential towers without green spaces.
There were 12 bands, a fair and you could sign protest petitions. The band in the photo is
Puppet Folk Revival, 3 American musicians with muppet characters who sing Dylan songs. The kids, who were younger than our children , knew all the words. It was like being back in the 60s . For more on the struggle (in Hebrew only) http://www.fight4florentin.com/
