Israelis take to the streets in renewed social justice protests

Thousands gather in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square; rallies throughout country held under banner 'Returning the country to the citizens'.
More rallies held nationwide. Similar rallies were held throughout the world on Saturday in "Global May," an international day of protest marking the anniversary of the protest in Puerta del Sol, Madrid, where a massive people’s assembly took control of the famous square in 2011.
"The message is one against the political system that does not count the citizens," Orli Barlev, a rally organizer, told Haaretz. "What we saw this week [the unity government deal] were moves that resulted from personal interests of power and control."

"This government has greatly deepened social gaps," she continued.
