Magen Dahari

Long time biker and veteran social activist Magen Dahari leads a demonstration under the Azrieli Towers. Tel-Aviv, Israel. 24/02/2011.

Long time biker and veteran social activist Magen Dahari leads a demonstration under the Azrieli Towers in Tel-Aviv, simultaneous to several other protests around the country. Ignited by a gas price hike earlier this year, a wave of protest has hit the country over the past few months. Protestors claim a 120% raise in water prices over the past two years of the Netanyahu government coalition, a 45% raise in prices of apartments, a 40% gas price hike, a 20% raise in prices of public transportation and an 8% decrease in unemployment compensation. “The middle class is being wiped out!” they claim quoting statistics that 67% of nationwide assets are privately owned by only 8.2% of the population and that although the country’s financial status is excellent its citizens are suffering.

Dahari seemed disappointed today as turnout was sparse and most Israelis remain indifferent.

“Aftershock” by Ziv Koren and Itay Engel

Spent a beautiful morning with beautiful people at the Tachana Compound in Tel-Aviv.

We went to see “Aftershock” by Ziv Koren and Itay Engel – Ziv with photos of Haiti right after the January 12th earthquake and Itay with a documentary movie.

Although I greatly admire Ziv’s photography, his exhibition was just another set of Haiti photos I’ve seen so many of. Itay Engel was better able to put his personal stamp into his documentary movie.

But it was indeed a beautiful morning!
