A group of economics, sociology and social welfare experts who have agreed to assist social justice protest leaders across the country, held a press conference Monday morning in Tel Aviv.

The so-called "social thought teams" will contribute facts and advice from their respective fields of expertise, and present various solution models for social-economic issues that have led to demonstrations across the country.

Professor Yossi Yona, head of one of the teams, told reporters that the teams identify with the protesters and their cause, saying that the "Israeli statehood is collapsing and a banana republic has been established in its place."
