Police arrested eight activists during the course of a demonstration outside the Tel Aviv Municipality building Sunday evening. Dozens of activists were protesting the evacuation of the Tikva homeless tent encampment in the south of the city earlier in the day.

One of those arrested was Shimon Vanunu, a homeless man who had been living in the Tikva Camp.
