Demonstrations were expected in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening to mark the two year anniversary since the large social protests that took place in the city and across the country.

The demonstration was set to begin from Habima Square at 8 pm and would lead to Kaplan Street where an all night vigil was to be held until Sunday morning, the precise anniversary of the 2011 protests, Army Radio reported.

A parallel demonstration in the Hatikva neighborhood in Tel Aviv was set to take place to remember Moshe Silman, the man who set himself on fire at a protest last year, according to the report. Before lighting himself ablaze, Silman said he received no rent assistance despite suffering a stroke recently and no longer being able to work at all.

Street closures were expected on Saturday evening.
