25,000 people attend silent protest march in Tel Aviv
The protest against the high cost of living was kept low key because of the rocket barrages from Gaza.
"This will be a silent protest with people carrying torches and candles to remind the prime minister that even in these difficult times, he is still responsible for the nation's health and welfare, just as he is responsible for its security," said the protest leaders in a statement.
The statement added that the mass demonstrations would not be held. It said, "When the march reaches Charles Clore Gardens on Tel Aviv's beachfront, we will all sit on the grass in broad or intimate discussion circles to talk, discuss, argue, sing, and everything will in exemplary silence to honor and identify with the victims of the criminal terrorist attacks. This hurts us all, this is everyone's protest."
