More than 400,000 people star in the biggest demonstration in the history of Israel in the so-called March of one million, Zenith of the protest against the scarcity of life which began in July, according to channels 1, 2 and 10 of the local television.

We won’t stop this protest until you, Prime Minister (Benjamin Netanyahu), give us real solutions. We are here to stay, said one of the main leaders of the mobilization, the President of the National Union of students, Itzik Shmueli, at the rally in Tel Aviv. Shmueli warned that the road to victory will not be easy, but will end up with a better israeli society based on a better balance between the free market economy and the human economy.
The March of a million was the challenge launched by the outraged from Israel to achieve the largest demonstration in the country’s history, seven weeks after the start of his protest movement. The outraged managed to take to the streets to 300,000 people in the then largest concentration in the history of the Jewish State for reasons not related to the Middle East conflict. The figure today, in a country of 7.5 million, exceeds the until now greater concentration in the history of the Jewish State, when 400,000 people took to the streets in protest, 1982 by the massacres in the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila, in the Lebanon. The Israelis of any political persuasion or religious, as it emphasizes one of the videos of mobilization ctuados by the organizers, had been summoned in cities across the country between 2030 and 2130 local time (17.30 and 18.30 GMT). Although the poster of the call reza, in a play on words: they only understand numbers, the organizers insisted that the success of the protest must not be measured solely by the number of attendees.
Last Saturday only mobilized 20,000, half in Tel Aviv. The israeli Minister’s Dnsa, Ehud Barak, advanced Friday that, although this Saturday night only 100,000 people, express their voice must be heard. The reply was born in Tel Aviv when a young planted in July, a tent in a downtown boulevard after running out of rented house. His case was followed by others in solidarity, which filled the Boulevard of hundreds of shops, spread to other cities and became a wider socio-economic protest movement. However, the initiative has been criticized in certain circles of left by set aside for tactical reasons the thorny issue of occupation and colonization of the Palestinian territories.
