Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz visited the Rothschild Boulevard tent protest on Tuesday evening where activists explained to him their discontent with the government, and particularly the minister's, inefficiency.

In response to a demonstrator's inquiry about the tycoons' lack of responsibility to the general public, Katz said that the situation was "serious" and that "we need to deal with it."

The minister commended the protest and said that "this is how the opportunity for change is created during a government's reign, and not only in elections."
