Hundreds of pensioners and activists gathered Monday at the intersection in front of the Azrieli Towers Monday to protest against the rising cost of living. Protesters caused a backup of traffic in intersection, one of the busiest in Tel Aviv.

The elderly protesters, throwing their support behind the tent protests that originated in Tel Aviv, were seen holding signs that said "The elderly also demand social justice."

Social-justice protesters have been rallying for more than three weeks in various marches, tent cities, and events around the country against the high cost of living and lack of affordable housing.
