A week after social justice demonstrations turned violent, with activists and police trading blame for instigating clashes, protesters hit the streets again on Saturday evening for a  demonstration march in central Tel Aviv.

Protesters were scheduled to march from Habima Square near the site of last summer's Rothschild Boulevard tent encampment to the Tel Aviv Museum compound, where a rally was then expected to take place.

Activists said in a statement that they planned to unveil a social contract signed by 20 social organizations, laying out concrete demands to the government ahead of the upcoming passage of the budget.

The activists emphasized that Saturday's protest march was approved and coordinated with police. Several central Tel Aviv streets were closed as a result of the demonstration including, Marmorek Street and large sections of Ibn Gvirol Street.
