Pictures from the revolu-tzion

Taken on Saturday night at the ever growing tent city on Sderot Rothschild and later at the march to the square outside Tel Aviv Museum. The organisers hoped for 5,000 people. 20,000 turned up.
Mahapecha (Revolution) says the sign above the shack and behind it, 'Rothschild corner Tahrir'
It's hot ...

Gathering by the square. At least in Tel Aviv, this is a revolution of nice middle class young people who have been squeezed too hard and aren't going to take it any more. Nor are the hard pressed doctors. The head of Israel's doctors' association has just embarked on a march from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, while fasting and vowing not to break his fast until the doctors' demands are met by the government.
Today, small groups of protestors blocked traffic at busy intersections throughout the country.
