Activists from the "social justice" protest movement on Tuesday called for a nationwide "peoples strike", to begin on November 1st, arguing that their demands are not being addressed by the government.

In a statement released on Monday, leaders identified with the movement said that the strike would follow a mass protest on October 29th, in which "the masses will take to the streets in a massive demonstration to call on the Prime Minister one last time to answer the demands of the people."

"On November 1st, 2011 we will start a peoples strike, the first of its kind in the history of the state of Israel, and launch an additional stage in the historic struggle for social justice….on November 1st, 2011, we will all go on strike because of our individual distress, but also in order to show solidarity with the hardships of others. We will not stand alone."
