Camp Sucker will pitch its tents again at Tel Aviv's Arlozorov train station on Monday at 9:30 a.m. to protest government decision to draft 1,300 yeshiva students to civilian service instead of army service.
"This is another populist move done by Netanyahu to please Shas instead of safeguarding public interest," movement leaders Boaz Nol and Idan Miller said in a statement.
According to Nol and Miller, who are running for Knesset with The Tzipi Livni Party, Netanyahu "continues to disregard all of us, hundreds of thousands who signed the petition calling for equality in shouldering national burden, and tens of thousands who came to protest."
"Every day that passes by, the government makes more and more civilians into suckers. These are good people, who love the country and want to continue contributing in any way they can, but cannot remain quiet anymore in light of this continuing injustice," Nol and Miller added.
