Jewish-Arab tent protesters in Jaffa announced on Thursday morning that they would be joining protesters in south Tel Aviv's Hatikva neighborhood on Saturday night for a large demonstration against the high cost of housing. The leaders of the two groups met Wednesday night to discuss joint activity in what Jaffa Popular Committee representative Hina Amori called a "natural" partnership.

"The troubles [of the two groups] are similar and the messages are similar, more so than with another [protest] encampment," Amori said.
