Hundreds demonstrated outside of the Knesset on Tuesday evening against the discussion Wednesday of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's new housing law, which they claim does not have enough provisions for public housing and ensuring that the new housing will be affordable instead of luxury housing.

Chanting "The Nation Wants Social Justice!" 100 people from the Jerusalem tent city in Gan Hasus (Horse Park) marched to the Wohl Rose Park, where they were joined by buses of protesters from as far away as Kiryat Shmona.
