I just thought to share some news from my country, as most likely you won't hear about it in the MSM in your country.
The protests for social justice has started again, although last year's protests were peaceful although more than 500,000 people were protesting at
some point. I wasn't in my country at that time, but I know that sadly the protesters were being distracted by live music, and all kinds of promises
from the government for social justice. However, as expected, nothing has changed and things got only worse and prices went up on almost all basic
living expenses, making it even more difficult to have these expenses covered by the comparable low wages.
Last Friday, hundreds of people have tried to set up tents on a garden nearby a busy street in Tel Aviv, but they met a suppressing police force and
they simply denied by force to let these people place their tents and some of the protesters got beaten up and arrested. This has made the public's
anger at the police and government to raise into new levels, and last night the protests have turned violence.

Violent night in Tel Aviv: Social activists in Tel Aviv clashed with police across the city Saturday evening, at one point shattering windows and
charging into banks in what is shaping up as unprecedented socioeconomic riots. Some 85 people were arrested throughout the night.
The demonstrators claimed police used uncalled for violence during Friday's rally, holding up signs reading "Don't touch my body, I have a right to
speak up" and "Dear police officer, please don’t disrupt this citizen in performing his duty."
Soon after, violent clashes erupted at various locations across Tel Aviv, including at banks near the city's Rabin Square. Protestors shattered
windows at some banks, in one case making their way into the bank with a tent, the symbol of last year's housing protest, and barricading themselves
I'm guessing we haven't seen the end of it, this worldwide revolution will not be stopped.
Thank you for reading. Peace.
