Social justice activists erected a number of buildings near Kibbutz Yakum in the Sharon region overnight Monday in a protest for affordable housing.

Under the banner "Justice Tower" and with Israeli flags flying above the makeshift structure, the group of around 20 activists vowed they would not leave the area until the government offered a solution to what they say are increasing housing prices. The activists claim the land is public land, managed by the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund.
