It's going to be a hot winter at the Knesset, said social protest leader Daphni Leef after listening to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhahu's speech at the opening of the Knesset's winter session Monday afternoon.

Leef and other social protest leaders listened attentively to Netanyahu speak, but did not find a message to the public in his words, the social protest spokesman stated.

"On the day that the Finance Minister announces an increase in the cost of nursery schools, and adds a heavy burden onto the collapsing middle-class, the picture is becoming clearer. This government does not want social justice. We and many others will be in this Knesset to prove that the public wants something else. Although invited to the gallery of honor, We chose to sit with other citizens in the public gallery - that is the true gallery of honor," said Leef.
