Several dozen protesters rallied in front of the prime minister's officer in Jerusalem on Sunday, demanding lower prices for water, gasoline and bread. Additionally, they called for raising the minimum wage.

The protest, which took place under the flag, "Anti-social policies," took place despite an announcement Thursday that the government would move forward with plans to raise the minimum wage and roll back recent increases in water, public transportation and gasoline prices.
