A march of right-wing protests blocked the streets at the end of Rothschild Boulevard and Kikar Habima in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, offering their support to the ongoing social-justice movement demonstrations.

"There is no right, there is no left, everyone wants affordable housing," protesters chanting.

In related news, some fifty rent activists blocked the entrance to the Tel Aviv Government Complex in response to the Knesset's passing of the housing-committees law, a bill activists said they were completely opposed to.

In response to the law's passing, social-movement organizers said they were calling for the largest demonstration yet to take place this Saturday night.
