Thousands protest gas agreement at events around the country

Israelis took to the country’s city centers on Saturday night in a last-ditch effort to protest a natural gas compromise outline they have deemed a "robbery" of public rights.

While the main demonstration took place in Tel Aviv at Habima Square, 14 other similar events occurred in Jerusalem, Beersheba, Haifa and a number of other cities throughout the country – organized by the nationwide Green Course student movement, the Gas Campaign Staff group and other organizations.

The activists are demanding that, rather than implementing an existing agreement that they feel favors a corporate monopoly, the government must develop a plan that will better suit Israel’s socioeconomic needs.
