The protest continues: A day after some 300,000 people staged mass rallies to protest the high cost of living, some 1,300 parents held a "strollers' march" in the cities of Givatayim, Carmiel, and Pardes Hanna.
In the central city of Givatayim, some 700 people marched with their children while waving signs reading: "A year in university equals a year of raising a one-year-old."

Meanwhile, 300 Carmiel residents held a similar procession, attended by Mayor Adi Eldar. At the end of the procession, participants set up a protest tent for the families – the second tent erected in the city thus far.
Roee and Liron Avidar, who attended the rally with their one-and-a-half year old son, told Ynet that they have been living in a caravan outside the city because the rent in Carmiel is too high.
"The cost of living has become unbearable. Everything is increasing – electricity, water and gas. They tell you to move to the periphery, but the situation here is not much better, and the prices are also high," she added.
