During their march, the demonstrators chanted various slogans, including "the answer to privatization is revolution" and "the people demand social justice." The protestors also urged coffee shop goers to join them, prompting several to join the march.
Along the route, the protestors disrupted traffic on several occasions and for a few minutes blocked the road leading to the prime minister's official residence. Police forces set up roadblocks in the area in order to prevent the activists from approaching the site.
Later, the protestors passed by an apartment building which they said is empty because apartment owners reside overseas. The marchers were accompanied by police during their walk.
Earlier Wednesday, housing protestors received support from the head of the Histadrut labor union federation, Ofer Eini. Protest leaders characterized the meeting as "very emotional." Eini announced that the Histadrut will be joining the struggle using "all means available." The protestors and Eini agreed to maintain full coordination in their messages and actions.
