Rothschild Boulevard almost free of Tents


There are still a few tents left at Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv. The demostration against high rents and unaffordable costs of living has not yet died. Those people who are really homeless and without money keep on staying although most tents have disappeared. The seven heads of the protest, however, have left long ago and try managing their own little resistance. Together with their left - wing organizers and supporters. 

Just recently, those seven invited Tel Aviv's Mayor Ron Chulda’i to an open discussion. The Mayor showed up but as soon as he entered, the protestors called him by some bad names and told him to leave. Chulda'i left but told the press that he is not offended, as there is not real head of the protest to talk to.

Hopefully the Municipality will provide some shelter for the homeless staying at Rothschild Boulevard. 

What's left ? African workers cleaning up Rothschild Boulevard.
