A demonstration will take place outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem on Saturday evening protesting the excessive spending done by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara.

"The economic plan approved this week in the tycoon government of Netanyahu and [Finance Minister Yair] Lapid will severely hurt the middle class and the poor, and doesn't address the tiny and powerful group of wealthy people who, in the last decade, got richer on our expense, while we struggled to pay the bills," the organizers of the protest said in a press release.

"This coming Saturday evening we will stand in front of the Prime Minister's Residence, that doubled its expenses in recent years, call him to get out of the comfortable bed he bought for half a million shekels, and look us, the working citizens, in the eyes," the organizers added.
