It all started on July 14th, when a female student was kicked out of her home by her landlord for not being able to pay her rent. The dramatic turn in this young girl's life as she faces living in a tent for her survivals has been the echoing of Israel's long-lived issues of sheltering and social justice and, which was the last straw for many who are now hitting the streets in protest.
The gatherings followed a rally last weekend in Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial capital, in which over 250,000 demonstrators called for economic reform. It was the biggest socio-economic protest the country of 7.7 million has ever seen.
Past demonstrations on such a scale in Israel have usually been over issues of war and peace but Saturday rallies from Haifa and Afula in the north of the country to the resort town of Eilat in the far south all focused on "social justice."
Leading Israeli performers entertained the protesters who carried banners highlighting the soaring cost of living.
