Hundreds of protestors took to the streets around the country on Saturday evening to protest the budget cuts approved by the cabinet on Sunday.

In Jerusalem, hundreds of demonstrators were gathering at Paris Square and were set to march to the Prime Minister's Residence. The demonstrators held a minute's silence to commemorate Moshe Silman, the man who self-immolated last summer during the social protests. In Tel Aviv about four hundred activists were marching down Ibn Gvirol in protest of the budget cuts.

In Beersheba there were also some one hundred protestors.
