Hadash MK Dov Henin on Tuesday referred to the newly released draft state budget as "a war budget, against the people," and suggested that it was likely to bring about the reemergence of the social justice protest movement.

Henin stated that "instead of giving natural resources back to the people, instead of obligating tycoons to pay a fair tax rate, instead of cutting the costs of occupation and settlements, the government prefers to cut stipends for children, public services and workers' rights."

He added that the government "may think that the social justice protest movement is behind us, but they will be surprised to find it in front of them."
